    and would like to display the flag appropriately. I drive a motorcycle
    with two flags displayed on the rear of my motorcycle. I display the U.
    S. Flag and the Marine Corps Flag. I have found disagreement on how the
    flag is to be displayed. Should the U. S. Flag be on the left or the
    right side of the motorcycle?

    Thank you,

    Sid

    One thing to keep in mind is when you put the bike on the kickstand the right side of the bike will be slightly higher. Therefore I would recommend the American Flag be on the right side of your motorycle thus giving it the higher postion when your bike is on a kickstand

    when looking at the rear of the bike the american should be on the right side of the bike. The side of the bike with the throttle handle.

    Thanks for the great info. I am the editor for our local Harley Davidson Owners Group newsletter and I was looking for proper flag etiquette.
    Thanks for the help!

    Hi, Karen -- glad that the information was useful.

    One other item that you might want to mention in your newsletter is the display of the flag when it is painted on the side of a motorcycle or other vehicle. The custom is that the stars face toward the front of the vehicle, regardless of which side the flag is on. (The idea is that the flag should look as if it is flying in the wind as the vehicle moves forward.) This is an exception to the general rule that the stars should always be on the observer's left. It's not specifically covered in the flag code, but it follows current military regulations.

    Best regards,

    Peter Ansoff
