Many Legion Coaches wish to know if it is proper to place a Flag Patch onto a team's uniform. The National Americanism Commission has made the interpretation that it is permissible to place a Flag Patch onto the team's uniform. The Flag Code does not address the issue where a patch should be worn, however if a flag patch is sewn onto a Legion baseball uniform, the field of blue should be to the upper left. Therefore coaches should use common sense. To learn more about proper flag etiquette, please visit the American Legion Web Site.
