You may be surprised how much people notice the flags. We get complements all the time, people love them . . . and will ask you where they are if you are there for awhile and leave them down one day.

Doug is right, flags are always a topic of conversation . Folks are always stopping by, saying how much they love them. They are probably being noticed more than you think.

The events of 911 and most recently in Boston bring to the front how important OUR flags are.

Keep'em fly'n

Flag Pole, Flags and holder

I am new to Airstreaming and I would like to purchase flags, the display poles on my Vintage Airstream. Where can I purchase these items?

USFlag.org: A website dedicated to the Flag of the United States of America - Flag Etiquette

When flown with flags of states, communities, or societies on separate flag poles which are of the same height and in a straight line, the flag of the United States is always placed in the position of honor - to its own right.
..The other flags may be smaller but none may be larger.
..No other flag ever should be placed above it.
..The flag of the United States is always the first flag raised and the last to be lowered.
When flown with the national banner of other countries, each flag must be displayed from a separate pole of the same height. Each flag should be the same size. They should be raised and lowered simultaneously. The flag of one nation may not be displayed above that of another nation.

When on display, the flag is accorded the place of honor, always positioned to its own right. Place it to the right of the speaker or staging area or sanctuary. Other flags should be to the left.



The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of states, localities, or societies are grouped for display.

Thanks Tom.

The one that I see once in a while is a flag on a wall and they have the field in the top right as viewed, incorrectly displayed.

Sandlapper makes a nice setup, easy to recommend. Now I just gotta get an Ohio flag later this month along with our side trip to Jackson Center.

I cannot find a clear etiquette for the flying the US flag with those of other countries on the "fan" type of display we get with our Airstream flag holders. If it's flown to it's own right, it will be lower than others. If it's in the middle at the highest point, it's not "in the position of honor - to its own right".

After trying these, talking to some fellow retired military like my wife and I, we fly it in the middle because that is the highest point which appears to be the position of honor here in this particular arrangement.

Any thoughts?

The center is the highest position so that is correct. Looking at the front of the trailer, the sequence would be 4-2-1-3-5 for a five flag setup and 2-1-3 for a three flag setup.

Richard, thank you, that's what we thought too. Do you have reference that shows or describes this particular "fan" arrangement?

Insert the shaft of the clip into the grommet on the flag and then into the hole on the pole. Swing the semi-circular wire thing around the pole and snap onto the end of the shaft sticking out of the pole.

Over the top of the pole (threaded area) I slipped a pvc endcap painted black. The endcap is topped with the brass ball drawer pull.

I had no problems ordering the Airstream flag from Airstream. I understand the flags were back order items for quite a while. The deep blue color is nice.

Interesting approach to the drawer pull and hitch pins, nice.
