General guidelines

The following are accepted as genral rules to the flying of flags. Their may be exceptions or difference acorrding to the individual country.

Much of flag protocol is derived from common sense. That is, don't use it as a table cover or to wrap boxes in. It should be treated with respect. Many countries considor signing a flag disrespectful, adding a border would be appropiate. Pinning or sewing items to a flag would also be ill advised.

On a mast or pole

If more then three flags are used the proper position is as far left from the point of viw of an observer. An additonal flag may be placed on the right side.

When two poles are crossed the position of honour is the flg the ends on the left side rom the point fo view of an observor. (therefor the pole will end on the right)

In a semi-cirlce the position of honour is the center. If a full circle is used outsied an entrance to an arena or stadium the position of honour is directly opposite the entrance. If used to line the walls of the arena the flag should be placed directly opposite the entrance.

Hanging

Flags should be rotated so the cnton is in the upper left corner. So, a Canadian flag would have the stem poining to the right.

When carried in single file the flag of honour leads.
