I just came across this news report from Atlanta, Georgia. Veterans said city sign displays American flag incorrectly - CBS Atlanta 46 It seems there's a gantry-mounted sign over International Boulevard with panels that have flags painted on them. It seems the American Flag panel has been mounted with the union in the top-right instead of the top left. However, while watching the report, I noticed several other flag mistakes. First, next to the American Flag is the Spanish Flag with the coat-of-arms in the center instead of closer to the hoist. On the Spanish Flag, the top of coat-of-arms is pointing left. This is strange since every other flag has the top of the flag pointing to the right. I also know that the Canadian and Australian flags should be hung with the top pointing left. Here is an image of the gantry from Google Images: Like the reporter, I went online to find more pictures of the gantry to see how it has looked in the past. I found this picture that shows the gantry once had a Soviet Flag: According to the report the gantry was constructed in the mid-1990s. This picture would indicate the gantry was constructed prior to 1990, or the Soviet Flag was included 5 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union. In this picture, the top of each flag is on the right. I also found this image: As you can see, the American, Spanish, Canadian, German, Mexican, Australian, Dutch, and Greek Flags all have the top pointing to the left. It appears the Soviet flag is a faded pink rectangle. I found more images that show the gantry with the Soviet Flag replaced by a Russian Flag, and the Spanish Flag with the coat-of-arms closer to the top/hoist. The images also show the flags with their tops pointing to the right. Also, the claim that the flag is displayed correctly because the union is on the north side over an east-west street seems to be an excuse to avoid admitting the flag is displayed incorrectly. Obviously, that guideline is meant to apply to an actual two-sided flag. An actual flag would be seen as correct on the west side of the street, and incorrect on the east side of the street. The flag panels on the sign are not two-sided. Anyway, I'm not upset like the man interviewed in the report. I just think it shows a lack of research and attention to detail.
