The flag for vertical hoisting is also prescribed, being the same flag with the white stripe to the left of the observer, and with the coat of arms rotated so it still stands upright.
By the same decision it is prescribed that a table flag can be made (with the permission of the Mayor) and that it should be the vertical version of the flag.
