  1. I couldn’t help but notice as I drove through St Annes along Clifton Drive how all of the lamppost union flags had the top white stripe facing the same way. This means that on some lampposts the top white stripe is facing away from the pole while on the other side of the road it is facing towards the pole. Does this mean that half of them have been hung upside down to make the look uniform?
    To some, hanging the union flag upside down is considered an insult.
    What do people think?
