    Use the search bar to find the hundreds of pictures that are already on this forum related to this topic. Or just use a ruler and space it the way you like it. It's not like it has to be dead on perfect down to the millimeter. It's not like you can see both sides at the same time.

    The fact that a sticker of the flag is being placed on a truck that gets dirty is a violation of respect for flag code anyways. I traveled to funerals and folded flags for dead veterans as a job. Slow down there hoss, it's just a sticker.

    This is a contemporary understanding of how the flag replicates an actual flag or “is always moving forward upon the enemy,” as Marines sometimes say.

    My thought would be to fly a real flag proudly according to the etiquette involved with a profound symbol that isn’t jingoistic or just plain superficial.

    OP, now that I’ve said my piece, if you want to put a square sticker on your truck somewhere, print out a facsimile with a printer and then tape it on until you like how it looks. Level it against relative horizontal and vertical lines. Then take those measurements and replicate on the other side.

    That part of the flag is also called the Union.

    I always find it interesting when the "flag code" violations start coming out. It's not the flag, it's a representation of the flag. Seriously, in a world where people are literally burning, stomping, desecrating, vandalizing, pissing on (pick an ____ing of your choice) our flag - it's pretty refreshing to see a guy who just wants to display a flag on his truck somewhere. Good on ya @Sixt7rsman !! For crying out loud, the US Flag Code has pretty much been used as toilet paper for decades - not a whole lot we can do about it now. Good luck handing out citations, or any kind of notice for that. Our flag appears on everything from Solo cups to condoms, socks to thongs, bathing suits and...well, you get the point. ALL of them code violations. It's EVERYWHERE. Better a cleanly placed sticker than one vandalized with a swastika or hammer & sickle like we see on the news damn near daily. Leave the code for more revered occasions. Fly that fu*ker with pride OP.

    @Paulndot you are right, I believe in this day with all the loss of national pride we have in the last few years I'd not have an issue with anyone who displays it to show some pride. A few errors with that flag code we should let go.
    All those that desecrate the flag well if they hate this country that much they should probably go live in another country for a few months. They would be back here most of them. This country probably the only country that's so good even those that hate it won't leave.
