More Flags Hung Backwards

Anyone who has read any of my posts knows that there are some things that make me nuts, one of those things is people (especially people who should know better), hanging flags backwards.

According to Flag Code, the blue field of stars is always (ALWAYS) hung in the upper left of the flag as it faces forward (the viewer). That is especially true when the flag is hung vertically. Needless to say, you would be amazed how often it is hung wrong.

First up is from episode five of Black Summer (Netflix) the scene is from a military base:

Next up is from Jordan Klepper’s new Comedy Central show, where he is talking to vets with PTSD who are using wrestling as a way to overcome their condition.

The next two are from an upcoming film Blinded by the Light (based on the music from Bruce Springsteen):

Seriously, how difficult is it to hire someone to figure out the right way to hang an American flag, and then do it?
