Thin Blue Line Flag etiquette...

Most everyone here knows I am a retired LEO and those that don't must not get out much. My daughter bought me a 3' x 5' Thin Blue Line flag for Christmas. I have a flag pole in the front of the house where I fly the U.S flag and the state flag. I want to replace the U.S flag with the Thin Blue Line flag but not being a true U.S. flag it doesn't fit into the etiquette of flag flying. I pretty much go by the book when it comes to flying the colors. I know I shouldn't fly it for personal security reasons but it is beautiful and I am extremely proud of what it stands for. I am thinking either a wall mount or maybe a flag standard in my second garage where I store the old Chevelle and Harley. Pretty much a man cave vs a garage, might fit in better there. Looking for opinions, thanks.

I like the idea of flying it on your second garage, what year is your Chevelle, I have a 75.

I agree with Chuck, I think it would look fine flying on your second garage/man cave.

I will change the one on the garage with different flags from time to time, but never my tall one. Maybe something like that would work for you. I also have a metal blue line flag in my office at work, and as you can see my truck has the blue line and a message as well. I have never been a Police Officer but I proudly support you guys. My wife does worry someone may not like it, but I don't. Proudly display your flag. And thank you for your service Sir.
Zoomy, you might have a winner with the bracket attached to the house or garage. Most people will look at the big flag pole and since the other won't be as visible only those in the know will know! Fortunately I live outside the metro area and the house is set back from the road so visibility is at a minimum keeping in mind 10-32's concerns.

I say fly whatever flag you want! My wife thinks I am crazy for flying my Tennessee Division Confederate flag.
I would love to educate anyone that would dare to complain.

Nice big block Chevy.
