Those are correct when wearing a flag on a US military uniform. However when displaying the flag on a vehicle. The field of white stars on blue should be flowing head on into he direction of the wind/movement. The other way around designates retreat.

The way they have it displayed makes it look like it's backing up or retreating..

Think the old days of the Calvary with the flag mounted on a pole behing held by someone on a horse. The flag is pinned by the field of blue with white stars.

I know I'm being a grumpy old man (only 43) but there are some things you would think they would get right (or fix radiant if that is the problem).

Gotcha....

Found this:

"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. The rule dates back to the Army's early history, when both mounted cavalry and infantry units would designate a standard bearer, who carried the Colors into battle. As he charged, his forward momentum caused the flag to stream back. Since the Stars and Stripes are mounted with the canton closest to the pole, that section stayed to the right, while the stripes flew to the left."
