Just like with displaying the flag, there are rules of etiquette for the proper use of American flag patches. Civilians often question why the U.S. army flag patch is reversed when worn on the uniform of army personnel. The truth is that the flag patch is only reversed when it is displayed on the right shoulder because the blue field of stars is supposed to always be in a position of honor and to appear as if it is always moving forward. What is said about this is it's not necessarily reversed; we are merely seeing the American flag from the other side.

Who can wear an American flag patch? Can civilians wear American flag patches?

Anyone who wishes to can wear an American flag patch if they want to and this very much includes civilians. The biggest thing to keep in mind when deciding to do so would be to make sure you still follow proper flag code when placing and wearing your American flag patch. You will always want to make sure that your flag patch is being placed in a manner that shows respect to the flag. The most popular places people find for their American Flag patches include the left and right sleeve and left lapel and chest area of their shirt, uniform or jacket providing they have the correct patches for that. To clarify on this, for example a flag patch with the blue field on the left of the flag will be worn on the left arm or side, while flags with the field on the right will be on the right arm or side. If you are wearing multiple patches on a piece of clothing, it is still important to keep the American Flag at the highest point to symbolize its importance and value. As with flag code, you don't want to cover the American Flag up with any other patches, marking, lettering or any other symbol as that is a big sign of disrespect towards the flag.

Does the American flag patch go on the left or right?

The answer to this question would depend on the style of American flag patch, as there are different designs made specifically for each sleeve. For the typical American Flag patch with the blue field on the left, the placement for this is going to be on the left, this could be the sleeve, lapel or chest area. For the American flag patches that see the blue field facing to the right, these are designed to go primarily on the right sleeve of a jacket, uniform or shirt. The intention behind this is to give the appearance of the American flag as always moving forward while being worn on the individual. This also gives the American flag its due diligence and respect.

Why is the American flag patch backwards? Is it like this on uniforms?

The American flag patch would appear backwards if it is located on the right sleeve of a jacket, shirt or uniform. This is done to have the American flag to appear as if it is always moving forward when being worn and in fact isn't technically backwards but merely just showing itself in its appearance from the other side as if it were on a flagpole.
