    If you are looking at it from the street to my house which side should the flag and flag pole be on?

    I ordered it 2 weeks ago and it should be here any day, just not sure which side to put it on.

    The middle is not an option,
    But is there any ettiquitte to properl honor it

    Again if u r in the street facing the house,
    Our house faces west if it matters
    On the left side is the porch an the right side the garage


    Thanks

    Hi, welcome to the forum!

    If you are looking at it from the street to my house which side should the flag and flag pole be on?

    There is no special rule about this. As long as the staff is securely mounted and the flag is clear of the ground, tree branches, etc., it can be displayed anywhere that looks good.

    When the US flag is displayed along with one or more other flags, it should be to its own right (the viewer's left) of the others, and should be at the same height or higher than the others.

    Incorrect...it should be on the right when you come out the door

    What I said was correct. It should be on the left as you face the house, which is what Inaccurate asked about. If you are coming out the door, it will be on your right.

    Wow!

    A "Blast From The Past"! A thread from 5½ years ago!

    Updated with TWO comments! (And now three...)

    Will "Greg Carson" will be a "One Post Wonder" just like "Inaccurate"?

    (There's one sure way to find out!)

    Quick! Where's the "EDIT" button???

    Hey! Wait a minute.... 2011 to 2012 = 1 year - 2013 (2 years) - 2014 (3 years) - 2015 (4 years) - 2016 - (5 years) + April to October = 6 months (½ year). OK, maybe April 23rd to October 1st doesn't actually equal 6 "FULL" months...

    Ta-Da!!! 5½ Years!

    Happy, Happy! Joy, Joy!

    Robin,

    I believe Peter Ansoff meant "now there are four comments" when he said:

    "No, Four! The fun never ends, does it?"

    Hi, Rick!

    Welcome to the USA-FLAG-SITE Forums!

    No, I understood. I was just having a little "fun". Peter was clearly responding to my "and now three..." comment, although I believe he forgot to include the letter "w" at the end of the word "No". As in "Now, Four! The fun never ends, does it?".

    NOW SEVEN !!!

    HAPPY FLAG DAY !!!

    I looked at it as a contradiction: "No, four". But either way works. Happy Flag Day!

    I was indeed referring to the number of comments. Robin said that there were "TWO comments! (and now three . . .)", with the "three" making a meta-reference to his own comment. I did the same by referring to "four." Not a contradiction, just a humorous meta-reference in response to Robin's. The "no" was intentional, although, upon reflection, "now" might have been better.
