Can the Union Jack be hung upside down?

Recommended Posts

I have to put the flag up where I work on days of special occasion or rememberance, today is Edward the Earl of Wessex's birthday so up goes the flag.

 

However when my boss saw it he thought he'd play a little joke on me and tell me it was hung upside down. I fell for it but recovered well as he didn't really realise. I then thought I'm shaw I've seen it somewhere where it can be upside down as on one side the white cuts across the red differently, anyway can the flag be hung upside down or not?

yes it can, although it's easily done, but as long as your flag didn't look anything like this then your forgiven. [image] flag

Well it is a credit that you can put the flag up anyway and they should be thankful for that!!!!! I had to put the Customs flag up at Tilbury for nearly two years before I left, but at least you could not put it upside down!!!!

Well when I was over at Customs house, Tilbury we had to fly the Union Flag on certain days instead of the HM Customs and Excise Flag which was up every day when the building was open. An example can be see above the Custom House, The Terrace, Gravesend!!!!!!!!!

Where I work we fly the Union Flag on one pole, the Stars and Stripes on another, and the third pole either has a blue flag with a funny E on it, or the flag of a overseas visiting customer. It whiles away five minutes playing guess the country of the flag! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

 

Visit the following site and it shows all the United Kingdom flags, plus which way up they should be! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

No it is the wrong way for people who are too lazy to find out the right way . What a poor summation of peole in Britain who don't even know how to fly their Flag...............No wonder so many people are emmigrating! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shrug.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />
