Flag Etiquette

There seems to be quite a few rules around flag etiquette, quite right too. You would think anyone in a position to fly a flag from a flagpole would understand these protocols, but no, that's not the case at all.

In the aftermath of yesterday's events it appears that East Sussex county council have decided to fly the union flag not at half mast as you might expect but rather at some kind of 'half arsed, half mast' arrangement. It's actually very near the top.

Update: This site seems to suggest that the flag should be flown one flag width down from the top of the flagpole, however I'm not sure I agree with their definition of 'width' in the illustration.

I could say it's just one more thing the council are incapable of doing correctly, but I won't.
