Why is the American flag always on the right?
What is meant by the flag’s own right? Answer: The “right” as the position of honor developed from the time when the “right hand” was the “weapon hand” or “point of danger.” The right hand raised without weapon was a sign of peace. The right hand, to any observer, is the observer’s left.
