I have seen many Canadians display their flag in the USA, which I welcome. They should be as proud of their country as I am of mine. I will display the Stars & Stripes wherever I go.

I found his blogger's post on the topic:
http://rickpaulettervjournal.blogspo...le-we-are.html

It doesn't speak specifically to flying a US Flag in Canada, but it talk to flying a Canadian flag and another countries (separate poles, equal height, equal size- it seems).

Was this Canadian...., French, English, or Ethnic Native?

Some 'Canadian' is laughing at you...

Just FYI- I moved some of the original posts that precipitated this thread from the "Sound off" thread.

Thanks, OC. I somehow missed that before.

Our CG have both the Canadian and US flag flying at the entrance. We have many US campers come to our CG and they proudly display the Stars and Stripes. I have camped in the US on the July 4th weekend and I would display the US flag out of respect plus I would display the Canadian flag. We are too neighbours and should show respect each others flag.

Doesn't matter to me how the flags are displayed as long as it is not dis-respectful. But I see that there is a protocol! I was thinking of flying the two flags one below the other off my awning, glad I read this thread first! Now I'm thinking one beside the other off the awning the left one being dependent on the country one is in? Thoughts? I don't know of anyone that carries 2 flagpoles with them in their campers.

Not trying to start an issue here and I'm not thinking or implying that you are dis-respectful, but why don't you care about displaying your country's flag properly? There are protocols and established customs for displaying the flag that reflect what your flag stands for and what the men and women fought for under that flag.

Not too difficult to display it properly.
