The federal flag code says the universal custom is to display the U.S. flag
Displaying the Flag
On Same Staff
U.S. flag at peak, above any other flag except a flag of another nation
U.S. flag goes to its own right. Flags of other nations are flown at same height.
U.S. flag to marchers right (observer's left).
On Speaker's Platform
When displayed with a speaker's platform, it must be above and behind the speaker. If mounted on a staff it is on the speaker's right.
Never use the flag for decoration. Use bunting with the blue on top, then white, then red.
Head bare (women and military leave hats on), right hand over heart (veterans may perform
a military salute), while standing at attention.
Over a Street
Union (stars) face north or east depending on the direction of the street.
On special days, the flag may be flown at half-staff. On Memorial Day it is flown at half-staff until noon and then raised.
* Do not let the flag touch the ground.
