Friday Photo: Pegged U.S. flag in Madrid

I saw this photo in today's VFYW series from the Dish.

It makes me wonder if this is a violation of the Flag Code. Let's see:
When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window, the flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street.
Technically now "against a wall", but it's the best that I could find, and the flag is technically displayed properly. Interestingly, the Flag Code doesn't actually have a section on how to affix a flag, so clothes pins seem to be okay...
