Aye. That's my understanding of the right way up, it was included for comparison. It's the other on the aeroplane that appears to be upside dow.

The explanation is that viewed from the port side the flag is correct assumed the flagpole would be at the front of the plane. So if you look from the starboard side you are effectively looking at the other side of the flag.

Surely, that only applies to flag being "flown" whether of flexible or rigid material? Normally, on a solid object, a flag logo is always viewed as if the flag pole is at the left.

If the pilot decided to try flying upside down :o it would appear correct from an observer on the ground.
