Can you fly the flag correctly?

SAM_0468

As an old Scout it’s immediately obvious to me that this Union Jack is being flown upside down. I find it annoying. But does it really matter or is just because I’ve become a boring old fart?

I can’t imagine Americans doing this and not just because it’s more obvious with their flag. It’s our national symbol. It ought to be treated with respect. But most people couldn’t tell you which way up is right.

Does it matter to you?

Oh, and the correct way is with the thick white lines on top on the hoist (the side of the flag nearest the pole).
