I dont notice anything strange about the flag on the foreground. Winds are coming from the mountains. It´s the giant flag of Madeira, already a "landmark" and an icon of this airport. The windsocks on the runway are blowing more or less in the same direction as the flag but that sometimes doesnt happen. Thats why when you check metar for Madeira, they give you winds for rwy 05, for rwy 23, for Rosario point (on rwy 05 short final), etc. Winds vary along the runaway and aproach, depending wich point or side you are.
