Nigeria’s Flag Flown Upside Down In South Africa During President Buhari’s Visit (Photos)

BBC Africa yesterday during President Buhari’s visit to his counterpart, Ramaphosa, I made some observations that really got me thinking.

One was the way the Nigeria flag was flow upside down and the other was the way theirs was flown correctly.

With my secondary school knowledge of flags, flying one upside down is an act of desecration but I made a quick search for more and this was I found.

“The practice has its origin in a distress signal; displaying a flag in this manner is “a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property”.

With President Buhari being an Army General, I know it’s wrong to fly a flag upside down in the Military.

Please what could it actually mean?
