US flag etiquette dictates that when displaying two or more nation's flags together that each flag should be on separate staffs of equal height and each flag should be approximately the same size.  International customs forbid displaying one nation's flag over another's flag in times of peace.  Displaying one nation's flag over another's flag is a sign of war time victory and can be a serious insult.

In the United States the American flag takes the position of honor over all other flags and should be displayed to the left when viewed by the public with the remaining foreign country flags being displayed in alphabetical order.  The only exception to this rule would be the flags displayed at United Nations Building where the flags are all displayed in alphabetical order.  Please read paragraph 175(g) in the Flag Etiquette section for more information regarding foreign nation flag display.

Some countries have both a "Government" and a "Civil" flag.  Both of these flags are usually identical except that the Government flag has an emblem or official seal.  Civil flags in general are intended for use in or on private homes, clubs, commercial buildings, etc.  In most cases you will not require the more costly Government flag.  We will ship the Civil flag unless the Government flag is specified when ordered.
