When flying the US flag, our state flag, and the POW/MIA flag on side-to-side poles. What order should they be in?
Normally you would fly the POW/MIA flag beneath the US flag. However, if you need to fly it on its own staff, a GSA directive for federal displays states, "It is generally flown immediately below or adjacent to the flag of the United States as second in order of precedence." [Ref: Bulletin: POW/MIA Flag Display]. Military protocol states that it would follow the others.
Facing the display, from left to right: US flag, POW/MIA, state flag. If you are flying them on two poles, place the US flag over the POW/MIA flag on the leftmost pole, and the state flag on the right pole.
Title 36, Section 902
On my motorcycle, I have two flags, the US flag and a POW/MIA flag. How should they be positioned?
The US flag should always be on its right, as shown in this picture. The POW/MIA or other flag flies on its left, which is the viewer's right, facing the motorcycle.
When flying just the US flag or several flags, the US flag can be at the center, flying higher than the others.
