At a recent graduation we were in a stadium with a national flag on a flag pole on one side of the stadium. In another location, on the other side there was a national in flag stand at the ground level by the students. When the national anthem played, the kids all faced the flag on the flag pole, as did most people in the stands. The dignitaries faced the flag in the stand at ground level in the opposite direction. Which flag should everyone be facing for the national anthem?
