Thick white uppermost nearest flagpole.
As you say, there is no left or right.  Although there's probably a standard (geddit? ) for when depicting a flag sans flagpole. No idea what that is though.
Likewise, the Dragon always faces the pole.

The dragon wasn't there when Pooh found the pole.

The Village Ensign had a Union Flag up yesterday ( upside down as usual). Other than it being Dave Hill's birthday, I couldn't find a reason. There normally is one, rather than being a bunting nonce.

The St George’s flag reappeared on the village church tower flagpole on Saturday. When a flag first appeared, around 15 years ago, it was a Union flag, but one of the more religious/knowledgeable amongst the congregation pointed out that the correct flag for Anglican churches to fly was that of St George, and so it was changed. It makes a handy weather vane.

Many years ago, the first incarnation of the Audax Ecosse jumper featured red lions rampant on a yellow background.
There never seemed to be a consensus as to whether said lions were looking the right way.

I've noticed that when churches around here fly a flag, it is always the Cross of St David, never Y Ddraig Goch.

That bugger St. George's work, no doubt.

The Alsace flag marries the flags of the Bas-Rhin and the Haut-Rhin. Looks like this (but without the line in the middle):



It was flown upside-down so often that they brought out a new one:



Almost nobody flies it.

I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

And everyone who does, flies it upside down.
