Truth about the flag

Captain Tony Nicholas, Lakeside

With reference to the letter “Flags up” (False Bay Echo, April 13)the flag was covering the plaque which you can clearly see in the photograph, and was the right way up.

The plaque was unveiled, causing the flag to drop down and appeared upside down in the photograph.

The school is well aware of the correct alignment of our flag plus the dozens of mariners there would have noted an error to the school staff if the flag was indeed displayed upside down.

Take a second look at the photograph and you will understand what transpired.
