Hey Yanling,

It's in the projwfc.f90 source file. From there:
 !  Order of m-components for each l in the output:
  !  1, cos(phi), sin(phi), cos(2*phi), sin(2*phi), .., cos(l*phi),
  !  where phi is the polar angle:x=r cos(theta)cos(phi), y=r
  !  This is determined in file flib/ylmr2.f90 that calculates spherical
  !      L=1 :
  !  1 pz     (m=0)
  !  2 px     (real combination of m=+/-1 with cosine)
  !  3 py     (real combination of m=+/-1 with sine)
  !      L=2 :
  !  1 dz2    (m=0)
  !  2 dzx    (real combination of m=+/-1 with cosine)
  !  3 dzy    (real combination of m=+/-1 with sine)
  !  4 dx2-y2 (real combination of m=+/-2 with cosine)
  !  5 dxy    (real combination of m=+/-1 with sine)
