Presidential flag

A programme called 'Our World' on the BBC's 'News 24' television channel recently reported on the argument between an examining judge in France and the President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame. (The judge believes that President Kagame should be indicted for war crimes arising out of the Rwandan civil war and genocide). The reporter interviewed President Kagame, who appeared with two flags behind him - the national flag and another which had a device on a white field. Subsequent close-ups showed that the device is the Rwandan Coat of Arms. In the context, it seems reasonable to assume that this is a presidential standard.

From several of these photographs I get the impression that the arms on the standard is actually tilted 90°, so that the arms are more or less upright, when the flag folds hang down indoors. So I made the corresponding image (shown above). Most probably in other contexts (car flag?) the arms
would be upright.
