Etiquette: n. rules for socially acceptable normative behavior

Etiquette rarely varies widely from one area of the country to the next but different cultures definitely have noticeable changes in etiquette which are unique to that culture.

Giving of flowers, cleaning your plate, tipping, and eating with your hands have different meanings in some countries and you can confuse the guest by doing those things which are accepted customs in the United States.
