Military Flag Order of Precedence

Have you ever wondered where the Marine Corps flag should stand next to the service flags of the other military branches?

Although Marines think we’re better than everyone else, the Marine Corps flag is not the ranking flag when all U.S. military flags are displayed (but it’s close).

Here’s the order of precedence:

  1. American Flag
  2. Army Service Flag
  3. Marine Corps Flag
  4. Navy Service Flag
  5. Air Force Service Flag
  6. Coast Guard Service Flag
