Read this in my flag handbook that came with my new flag one day. What flag is allowed to fly ABOVE the US flag? Hummm....

The blue UN flag? [;)]

None! And any that *are* flying above the Stars and Stripes needs to be removed, by any means neccesary.

This is pretty obscure - “When it is displayed from the same flagpole with another flag - of a state, community, society or Scout unit - the flag of the United States must always be at the top except that the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for Navy personnel when conducted by a Naval chaplain on a ship at sea. “ [url]http://www.usflag.org/flag.etiquette.html[/url] Edited to add - Damm. He beat me to it. For a second I thought I double posted.

Very Good! That was quick! I was suprised when I read that. I always thought that no flag was to be flown over the US Flag.

It DOES make sense. Literal interpretation of "One Nation, under God..." And a church pennant isn't a nation's flag. CJ

this is the only exception to the rule that the US flag flies atop. however, if in a forien coultry on forighn soil, the US flag assumes a subservient role and is flown accordingly.

Everybody has it wrong. The Confederate flag is the supreme flag of North America and should fly above all others!

Another interesting piece of trivia surrounds the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. The original had no mention of God. Congress amended the Pledge in 1954 to include these words.
