My DW's family is from your great state and we had this conversation with her kin a few years ago. The bottom line is that all state flags may fly at the same height as the U.S. flag.

Its about 1/3 of the way down this page ...

All state flags can be flown along side the Stars and Stripes. They cannot be flown above the US flag or in what is considered a state of prominence. See attached verbage from the US Code of Federal Regulations.

(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the
right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services
conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown
above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person
shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other 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 or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided,
That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice
heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of
superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal
prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the
headquarters of the United Nations

Sorry, Poppy - Not True
While the Lone Star flag may be special to Texans, nothing in federal law makes it more special than any other state's flag.
There is nothing in Federal law which states the Texas Flag is equal to the US Flag in any way. It may be for Texans but it is not any more special than any other State flag. Check out the US Flag law before stating feelings. Sorry, but it is what it is. What gljurczyk says is true, and no flag can be flown higher than the US Flag, equal to, not higher with the exception of the "church" flag which is struck after services.

I have been told not to fly it if you do not know flag etiquette.

Oh you need to be careful bursting a Texan's bubble. Having lived there I know they are a rightfully proud bunch. If they ever become an independent country again I would be knocking on the door.

Thanks
