    Display of the American flag

    So I was in one of our public schools this evening and noticed their flag was displayed with the stars on my right hand. It was displayed vertically. Now I don't claim to be the world's greatest patriot but I always thought the stars were to be on the left. Is there a reason for them to display it the way the are? I am really wanting to tell the school it needs to be changed. What are your guys thoughts. Hanging on a wall

    Depends - was it on a wall or on a window?

    Not too often you get all this neatness in one location. That's called nature.

    If displayed on a wall, either vertically or horizontally, the union is to be at the observers left.

    Sounds like you need to educate that school.

    If the flag is on the arm of a military uniform, the union is on the right. This orientation is intended to depict the flag in the position it would be if it were being flown and the unit was advancing. It’s symbolic of “always advancing” on the battlefield. This could be where someone got things mixed up at the school.

    If you're reading this post and find yourself muttering, "he can't be serious", there's a good chance I'm not.

    I'd just be happy that, in this day and age of butt hurt and political correctness, there's an American Flag hanging, period.

    Sad, but true.

    As fj40 said when hanging on a wall either vertically or horizontally the stars are to be in the upper left.

    I'm happy to see them having the flag up too but it would have been just as easy to hang it properly.

    I hope you thank them for hanging the flag and then ask them to hang it correctly.

    Nice catch! We need more Americans like you noticing these things.
