    Plenty of opportunities on Friday and if honoring our Veterans continues into next week I'll be able to get some shots, until then I'm stuck at work till dark to dusk. :becca

    I apologize for the above example, :fpalm

    When the flag is displayed over a street, it should be hung vertically, with the union to the north or east. If the flag is suspended over a sidewalk, the flag's union should be farthest from the building.

    Agree there rdc. Can't say I have seen the US flag hanging on a tree branch before.

    So the union is generally top and left when viewed when none of the protocols fit. So, the flag in this picture looks correct EXCEPT the tree makes it awkwardly wrong. Another scenario are those flags in a store window. Look good from the street, but inside the store it is wrong. Same for some gyms and arenas.

    If you've been down Briley Parkway south of Madison TN in front of Camping World you've seen this big-ass flag, Today was a good day to catch it in the breeze.
