 (a)  No other flag or pennant shall be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States.

 (b)  No person may display the flag of the United Nations or another national or international flag equal, above or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within this Commonwealth.

 (c)  The flag of the United States, when it is displayed with another flag against a wall from crossed staffs shall be on the right, the flag’s own right, and its staff shall be in front of the staff of the other flag.

 (d)  The flag of the United States shall be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of States or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and displayed from staffs.

 (e)  When flags of States, cities or localities or pennants of societies are flown on the same halyard with the flag of the United States, the latter shall always be at the peak. When the flags are flown from adjacent staffs, the flag of the United States shall be hoisted first and lowered last. No such flag or pennant may be placed above or to the right of the flag of the United States.

 (f)  When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they shall be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace.
