Long may it wave

OK, so I was on the Marvel Comics Web Site today, checking out Comics on Sale and I came across the cover for Captain America #616:

And, well I couldn't believe that they hung the U.S. Flag behind Cap backwards. Yeah, that’s right, backwards. You would think that someone would research this stuff before illustrating it.
8. When the flag is displayed in a manner other than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out. When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window it should be displayed in the same way, that is with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street. When festoons, rosettes or drapings are desired, bunting of blue, white and red should be used, but never the flag.
This stuff just makes me crazy!
