Yep. As if the flag were trailing behind you when you run. Of course, if you're as old and slow as I am, you wear a flag that just hangs there.

Here's the American Flag patch that should be on your right sleeve, if your state association requires that the flag be worn there.

Yes wearing a patch does not an official make, but it does, in the world of HS sports at least provide a minimal (and I do mean for extremely small values of minimal) amount of accountability to the state that the officials on said list has done at least *something* towards being an official in the chosen sport, namely having passed an open book test and sending in $45. Cause otherwise you know that there would be some school somewhere that would offer just anybody a game. Again, to us having a patch doesn't make you not "just someone". But in the eyes of the state and schools involved it does.

Typically in the college world, there is at least some person(s) accountable for every official that walks onto the court. Until the HS world moves fully into an assignor based system (which will never happen), then having an xxSHSAA patched official on a game shows both schools that he/she has at least a minimal (and again I do mean for extremely small values of minimal) amount of accountability towards working said game. That and he paid $45.

I thought the proper way to display the American Flag was with the canton in the top left if the flag is displayed horizontal, and the canton in the top right if the flag is displayed vertical.

Displayed, perhaps. Worn on a sleeve, however, it's different.
From usmilitary.about.com
Quote:
When approved for wear, the full-color U.S. flag cloth replica is sewn 1/2 inch below the right shoulder seam of the temperate, hot-weather, enhanced hot-weather, and desert BDU; the BDU field jacket; and the cold-weather uniform. The flag is worn on the right shoulder, because, in the military, the "place of honor" is to a military member's right.

The full-color U.S. flag cloth replica is worn so that the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.

Yes, if it is displayed against a wall. It is more complicated in other cases.
  • (h) When the flag of the United States is displayed from a staff projecting horizontally or at an angle from the window sill, balcony, or front of a building, the union of the flag should be placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half staff. When the flag is suspended over a sidewalk from a rope extending from a house to a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the flag should be hoisted out, union first, from the building.
  • (i) When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window, the flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street.
  • (j) When the flag is displayed over the middle of the street, it should be suspended vertically with the union to the north in an east and west street or to the east in a north and south street.
