If the Flag is on the same level as the speaker or on a platform as the speaker it goes to the speakers right. If there is platform and the flag is placed off of it then the flag is placed to the right of the audience but only if there is already a flag on the platform.

I could be wrong about the last part but the flag always goes to the right.

I didn't read it correctly and did a litle search for "flag etiquette" here is what I found...


"When displayed from a staff in a church or a public auditorium, the U.S. flag should be in position of honor at the clergyman's or speaker's right as he faces the audience (the left of the audience). Any other flag so displayed is to be placed at the speaker's left as he faces the audience (the right of the audience)." -From heritage-flag.com

and ushistory.org


The Reader's Digest condensed answer to the question is NO.

Sorry for the confusion.
