Our smartphones can now sport the Portland city flag. Cases like that on the left are available on Zazzle, Etsy, and Amazon. But as this illustration shows, when the phone is held upright, the flag is actually shown upside (hoist side) down. The two designs on the right would remedy this: the middle design is just the front of the flag rotated (the way you would hang most flags vertically), the rightmost design is the back of the flag rotated (hung the way the US flag is supposed to be when displayed vertically, with the “canton” in the upper left).
NW Flag & Banner, at NE 57th Ave and Sandy, occupies a small loft space above Northwest Auto Accessories, a retailer of a broad range of items for cars and trucks. An Annin dealer, it has a very small inventory and focuses on auto dealers (which were, ironically, the initial clientele of Elmer’s Flag & Banner over 50 years ago). It also sells flag poles.

The Rogue Distillery and Public House, in the Pearl District at NW 14th and Flanders, flies a plethora of flags—mostly sports-related—as well as the Portland flag (upside-down).
