Not sure if this has been covered before. I was wondering why the Australian flag on Qantas aircraft is 'inverted' with the union jack in the upper right hand corner and the southern cross on the left.

t's on the aircraft so that it appears as though it is being swept backwards in the direction the wind would blow it on the airplane

But adding a flag to a registration is not that important, however it looks good and logical when airlines invert their flag at the right side of the plane.
