Excuse my thickness - how can you tell if it's upside down? - looks symmetrical to me . . . :hmmm:
If you look at the bottom of the flag - against the flag pole - the red stripe should not be above the corner, or in the middle of the corner - but below - as per the picture below. The thicker part of the white stripe above and the thinner part of the white stripe below.

In the old days of wooden warships - if a Man Of War had been boarded the crew would hang the flag upside down so as to warn their fellow ships that they were no to be approached as they were in enemy hands.

These two pubs were photographed in Bristol.
The Pump House is obviously converted from it's original use on the dockside.

The Hole in the Wall refers to a spy hole in the dockside wall, used to keep an eye out for the Press Gang, eager to capture some sailors.

These two are in England's smallest city: Wells, in Somerset.
The City Arms is now a pub with rooms but in the 17th Century it was the City Jail.

This, the Bishops Eye is actually a Wine Bar, serving quality beverages, continental meats and cheeses, rather than a pub.
The name comes from the adjacent archway and tower located at the entrance to the Bishop's Palace.
No doubt he could keep an eye out for any "goings on" and send the miscreants down the street to the jail. ;)
