Etiquette Tips for Flying the U.S. Flag

1. When the flag of the United States of America is displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union (stars) should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right (left, to the observer). When displayed in a window, the flag should be hung in the same way, with the union to the left, as viewed from the street.
