White House POW-MIA flag.

Along with the American flag, the White House flew the POW-MIA flag on Veterans Day(Don Gonyea / NPR)

Don Gonyea, NPR's White House correspondent, noticed something a little different about the flag situation at the White House today. On the flag pole atop the official residence, the POW-MIA flag waved in the wind below the American flag. Don took a picture of it.

It has flown above the White House under other presidents. But it always makes an impression when you see the stark black and white flag above the White House. It is the only flag other than the American flag to fly above the president's house.
