It's correct. The stars should always lead. Imagine a flag on a flagpole blowing in the wind, the stars will always be on the side attached to the pole thus the flag will appear to be backwards on one side.C McCarthy

did they fix it? when did you download it? because on the starboard side the stars were on the left side and facing forward which is incorrect

The rule for displaying the actual flag on a wall or such is that the stars should always be on the upper left as looking at it. However, on vehicles or aircraft it should be as though the flag were on a flagstaff and blowing away from the direction of travel.http://www.cqql.net/flag.htmBud

You are quite correct it is incorrect. Do an image google search on Polar air and see for yourself.CheersSteve

Steve,I just redownloaded the Polar repaint and it appears to have the correct flag placement now. So just Atlas is wrong

Actually fixing the flag would be an easy thing without having to wait for a new download. Open the bmp in Dtxbmp, export to Paint Shop select the flag, reverse, save, import back into DXTbmp and save :)Bud

That certainly is wrong. The Polar I have has the flag correct, stars in the upper right on the starboard side, didn't check the Atlas.C McCarthy
