A gross violation of flag etiquette but perhaps an honest effort.
When we had a foreign contingent visiting a summer camp many years ago we
solved the problem by not displaying the state and council flags (we had a
three pole arrangement with the center one highest). The US flag normally
was flown from the center pole but in this case we left the center pole
empty and flew the US flag from one outside pole and, I believe, Denmark's
flag from the other. I believe the Danish Scouts saluted as the colors
were raised but my memory is faint since that was before we landed on the
Roundtable Commissioner, Pawnee Bill District, Will Rogers Council
