The POW/MIA flag, also known as the National League of Families POW/MIA flag, can be seen flying in Defense Department installations and in many other government and private locations. It flies directly below the United States flag during the observance day. If there are two flagpoles, it is always flown to the viewer's left of the U.S. flag. Besides being flown on National POW/MIA Recognition Day, Congress in 1998 legislated that it can also be flown on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day. In 2019, Congress authorized the POW/MIA flag to be flown at certain locations on all days that the U.S. flag is flown.
