    Hello all....I have one quick question about displaying the U.S. Flag & the California State Flag out in front of a school on side by side flagstaffs of the same size, when looking at the school, which flag should on the left staff?

    Thanks

    Hello Poppa John,
    Welcome to the Forum and thanks for posting your question. It is the US flag that should be to the observer's left as you look at the school. That is the place of honor, as it is to the flag's own right.

    Hi Nick....Thanks for the warm welcome. I thought thats the way it should be. My grandsons school has it the other way around. Guess I'd better email the principal! :) And once again Thanks

    Hi, PapaJohn ! :D


    Welcome to the USA-FLAG-SITE Forums !!! :D


    If your son's school principal doesn't "get it", then show him/her a copy of the "U.S. Flag Code". It's all there in "black & white" (and red, white, & blue, too!) !!! :eek:
