Does it matter if you are on an American military base or not? Likewise, is it ok to fly another country's flag in America?

No, it's not wrong unless that nation has some kind of law against it, they just need to follow that nation's flag codes--just as anyone flying the flag of another nation here in the U.S. is supposed to follow the U.S. Flag Code. People can fly flags of other nations here in the U.S, but they need to follow our flag etiquette. If another nation's flag is flown with the American Flag, the American Flag should be larger and higher (and in the center if there are mulitple flags) or to the center or right if being carried in a procession. In times of peace, the other flags should be the same size. There are some exceptions to our flag code, one is that any other nation their national flag must be placed in a place of prominence. The U.S. flag code only applies to flags flown on American soil. Another exception that I'm aware of is the UN headquarters flies all the member nations' flags in Alphabetical order.
