    Flag Display (2000)

    Don't know where to put this, but since the site is done in FP2000 here goes.

    Does anyone know if a US flag (image) has to be placed on any special area of the webpage? Left top, right top, middle?

    I've checked all the flag information websites but nothing addresses placement on a website.

    Has to be according to flag protocol? As a Canadian - I don't think my advice would count anyway ... perhaps someone else will have a suggestion.

    In that case I'd say use your own best judgement.

    There's none that I know of. Flag etiquette addresses the handling and display of the physical banner itself, not a drawing or picture of it, except perhaps in the case of inappropriate displays like underwear, etc.

    The <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.dar.org/cgi-bin/natsociety/content.cfm?ID=63&FO=Y&HD=N&SD=N>DAR</A> doesn't address pictures or graphic displays, but they cover most other situations.

    There are no rules regarding flag protocol on web pages, to my knowledge. I would suggest, though, that if you are displaying more than one national or state flag on the page, that the US flag (in your case, the Canadian Maple Leaf in mine) would be uppermost - purely out of courtesy. There is certainly very clear protocol for display of flags at ceremonies, on poles, etc., and there are lots of references on the web.

    Shouldn't matter on a web page, but you'll want to use proper orientation, so that the stars are in the upper left. (see sig)

    I would further state that while there's no "official" protocol -- I would interpret as much as possible from existing....
    If displayed with other countries, no larger, nor more prominent than the others; if displayed with states or provinces, in a position of prominence and honor.
