    Was just wondering what exactly the subdued flag is and is it OK to wear such a patch? The symbols appear to be the same, but the colors look to be silver & black. Please advise. Thanks.

    5R. U.S. FLAG INSIGNIA - THE U.S. FLAG INSIGNIA (FULL COLOR OR SUBDUED) IS WORN ON THE RIGHT SHOULDER POCKET FLAP OF THE ACU COAT. THE FLAG INSIGNIA IS PLACED DIRECTLY ON TOP OF THE HOOK AND LOOP-FACED PAD ALREADY PROVIDED WITH THE ACU COAT SHOULDER POCKET FLAP. THE SUBDUED U.S. FLAG INSIGNIA IS WORN AS DIRECTED BY THE COMMANDER UNDER TACTICAL OR FIELD CONDITIONS.

    Is it OK for a civilian (particularly one who has never served in the military) to wear the subdued flag, or to affix it as a metal emblem on a civilian vehicle? Even if this violates no code, is it likely to raise the ire of those who have served in the military?

    And is it proper to affix non-subdued flag emblems on both sides of a civilian vehicle so that the Union is facing forward (i.e., it is reverse/backwards on the passenger side)?
