Most-to-be correct vertical-hanging national flag

[National Flag of Mexico: vertical hanging flag] 7:4
by Juan Manuel Gabino Villascán,
January 2006.

There is no official statement about hanging the national flag vertically, however, following the description given by article 1º of the Ley del Escudo, la Bandera y del Himno Nacionales, the position of the Coat of arms shall remain the same as normally hoisted. Otherwise the eagle would look as lying down instead of stood.

Although there is no offical statement about how to display the national flag vertically, the two images above show just two heraldry incorrect ways to do.

Although completely unofficial as well, it has been seen in consistent use, at least in recent years, vertical variant flags keeping the vertical displaying of the stripes.
Ratio varies.
When placed, the coat of arms is in the middle of the flag, either centered or slightly charged upwards; its diameter varies from three-fourths of the white stripe's width to the half of the flag's width; in this latter case, it is placed over a white circle.
Usage is mostly decorative: specially in September during the independence holidays and in a lesser way in November during the "Revolución Mexicana" festivities.
The flags usually are hoisted on light posts, stoplights, balconies, windows, doors, gates, and walls.
Some images above are based on photos taken located by Zachary Harden.

During the Independence holidays in September of each year, houses, walls, fences, sidewalks, windows, balconies, doors, and even trees, are adorned with such banners, featured by a seal-like plastic-made coat of arms.
