When the Arkansas Flag is displayed within the State of Arkansas, it should occupy the position of honor (to the observer's left) after the U.S. Flag and the flags of any other nation, and before the flags of other states, Arkansas counties, municipalities, and public and private organizations.

The positions of honor in a display of flags are:
  • U.S. Flag in the position of highest honor (the observer's extreme left or the highest point in a grouping of flags).
  • Flag or flags of other nations ranked in alphabetical order.
  • Arkansas Flag.
  • Flags of other states, ranked in an order determined by the respective state's date of admission to the Union. In national events or ceremonies honoring the nation or the U.S. Flag, the Arkansas Flag may occupy the twenty-fifth position among the flags of the states in recognition of its rank as the twenty-fifth state to join the union.
  • Flags of Arkansas counties with the host county in the position of honor to the left (the observer's right) of 'the Arkansas Flag, followed by the other-county flags ranked in an order determined by a county's date of creation.
  • Flags of Arkansas municipalities, and the flags or pennants of public and private agencies, institutions, and societies ranked in an order determined at the discretion of the organizers of the particular event.
