The “backwards” facing flag

On police cars, uniforms, etc. the US flag is always printed in reverse from how we’re normally used to viewing it:

When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.

Interesting. As an aside, YAHOO! Answers should really provide permalinks to their answers, so people can link diresctly to the desired answer, not just the question.
