The Union Jack was seldom seen flying at schools and houses, unlike the American Flag which is flown nearly everywhere in USA.
This flag is the correct way up, refer :-

For Upside - Down Union Jacks refer :-

Nice pic Thomas!! The Aussie flag was always flown at our local primary school. I can remember how excited our kids were when they had their turns to hoist it in the morning and bring it down in the afternoon. Flags are flown in Australia with pride. We have national flags and state flags and also the Aboriginal flag, they are all flown with pride and honour. Keep them coming Thomas, cheers!!

Same at my daughter's primary school. Outside all lined up at assembly, the National Anthem played as the flag was hoisted - kids standing in lines for assembly. Lovely.
