American flag etiquette

When installing the flag on a vehicle (including boats), the flag should be installed on the right side of the vehicle. A general rule of thumb is the stars (and#8220;unionand#8221;) should always be at the upper left corner when the flag is displayed. Additionally, when suspended across a street, the flag should be vertical, with the union to the north in an east-west street, or to the east in a north-south street.
