I have to agree with Dave. If there are three flag poles, the
American Flag should be in the center. If the poles are all the
same height, then you run the American Flag to the top of it's
pole and set the other two flags at slightly less than full-mast.
The only exception to this would be for a company or
organization flying several nation's flags, such as one doing
business internationally. I don't have the flag code in front
of me, but in this case, the US flag is on the right and all
are raised to equal height.
