Protocol Office Article 2012.04.01 Fed­er­al ea­gle fac­ing the wrong way

According to Section I no. 3 of the Directive concerning the German flags of 13 November 1996, the official flag of the federal authorities (federal institutions flag) “shall have the same horizontal stripes as the federal flag and shall bear the federal shield ... with the eagle facing the staff”. 

The command flag shown in the photo is a faulty construction, as the federal eagle is facing the wrong way.
