The Correct Way to Display an American Flag
An American flag hung from a pole horizontally or at an angle from a house or building should always have the blue field with stars (otherwise known as the union) at the peak of the staff. The union should always be at the top most point of the flag.
The union should always be on the flag's right (observer's left) when an American flag is displayed vertically or horizontally on a wall. The union should additionally be in the uppermost position. This same placement should be observed when displaying the flag in a window.
