I was at work and no one had returned the flags to full mast from yesterday, so I put them back up, but was confused. I know that if it's the same pole and the US and state flags are on the same halyard, the US flag is on top. I know that if they are on separate poles they may be flown at the same level. This single pole had two halyards on either sides of it, one for the US one for the state flag. I thought since they were on separate halyards they would be flown at the same level, but was "corrected" later and my boss lowered the state flag below the US flag. Anyway, I think maybe the pole setup is just not standard? I don't know, I'm still confused.
