Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and just tried to post a thread but received a message that I could not priview my post & so logged in again. Maybe my post was too long, so I'll try to make it shorter. I believe that the company flag should not fly on the same flag pole as the US flag because it is considered to be advertizing. Is that correct? What about safety achievment flags such as "8 million man hours without a lost time accident," or "VPP Star Site" (refers to US DOE's Voluntary Protection Program)? Would US DOE flag be considered advertizing or would it be considered in the same status as the state flag? I have had questions about professional and non-professional sports team pennants or flags. Can they be on the same flag pole as the US flag? I would appreciate several responses if there are some members out there with experience in these situations. Thank you all in advance.
