Fall quarter will be the first time we will be displaying and processing flags in our commencement ceremony at our university. We plan on displaying 38 flags that will be mounted and hung at an angle from the balcony above the gym floor. We plan on displaying the country flags in alphabetical order from left to right (if you are looking at them from the stage) followed by the Native American flags in alphabetical order. Is this correct? We plan on processing in the US flag, 4 country flags (countries of students graduating this quarter) and 2 Native American flags from our own state. Is it proper protocol to walk in the following order: US flag, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Zimbabwe, and the 2 Native American flags in alphabetical order? After the national anthem, the flags will be processed out of the gym to the lobby where they will be displayed in stands all on 8' poles. If you were facing them in the lobby it would look like this: US-Italy-Japan-Taiwan-Zimbabwe-Tribal Flag-Tribal Flag. Is this correct or should the Native American flags follow the US flag followed by the country flags? For future reference, should the country flag of Taiwan by alphabetized by "T" or "R" for the Republic of China? Thanks for your help.
