Question The US flag (flying the US flag in Canada)

I was told by an American who camped in Canada that our flag may not be flown at camp sites. Is this true?

I always thought out of respect, you fly the host nations flag along side the American flag. "
Dignity of the Flag

The National Flag of Canada should be displayed only in a manner befitting this important national symbol; it should not be subjected to indignity or displayed in a position inferior to any other flag or ensign. The National Flag always takes precedence over all other national flags when flown in Canada. The only flags to which precedence is given over the Canadian flag are the personal standards of members of the Royal Family and of Her Majesty's eleven representatives in Canada (ie. The Governor General and 10 Lieutenant Governors)."

The US flag

I can't find wher the answers are to my question. But, the answer as to where I learned about NOT flying the US flag in Canada came from my Alaskan neighbor here in Mesa. This guy told me, while camped in BC, to take the US flag down. I got the correct answer from a Canadian!

Never heard of such. Whomever told you that was sorely mistaken.

With flags of other sovereign nations [4]

The National Flag of Canada, when flown or paraded, takes precedence over all other national flags. When flown with the flags of other sovereign nations, all flags should be flown on separate flagpoles/masts and at the same height, all being of the same size, with the National Flag of Canada occupying the position of honour.

When camping in Canada I always and proudly displayed my American flag on my campsite. Never had a problem from anybody.
