Flag Upside Down

Even the Royal Palace staff can do wrong, when hoisting a flag. At the Royal Palace in Oslo, Norway, the royal flag was hoisted upside down this morning. As soon as the fault was discovered, the flag was hoisted again, the right side up.

I wonder what my Dad would have said about this. He was born and raised in Norway and always a Norwegian patriot. I do believe he would have recognised it as the mistake that it must have been, however. When you think about it, it is quite funny. We all hope it will just be a one time thing, though. It is not funny if repeated.
