On a Pole With Another Flag
When flying your organization, state or city flag from the same pole as the U.S. flag, Old Glory should always be at the top of the pole, in a position of honor.
From a Staff Adjacent to Others
The U.S. flag should be placed in a position of honor, which is the extreme left, as the flags are most frequently viewed.
During a Speech
When the U.S. flag is displayed on a staff situated on a platform with a speaker, it should be to the speaker's right. If it is displayed flat, it should be positioned above and behind the speaker.
At Half-Staff or Half-Mast
Half staff is defined as half the distance from the top to the bottom of a flagpole. If flying a single flag, the center point of the U.S. flag should be aligned with the center point of the flagpole. If more than one flag is displayed, measure the length from the top of the first flag to the bottom of the last. Then align the center point of the flag group with the center point of the pole.
When a flag is flown at half-staff, it should be raised to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. When retiring the flag at the end of the day, this procedure should be repeated.
If your flag is on an outrigger flagpole or mounted on a wall and cannot be flown at half-staff, it is appropriate to tie a black mourning ribbon above the flag.
