Flagging the Error at the Freedom Tower

The Freedom Tower got off to a shaky start when someone realized the American flag on the first steel beam was backwards. The Tower is going up on the site of the World Trade Center.

The flag, plastered on a steel column, looked fine while the beam was lying on its side -- with the union to the upper left, flag appearing to flutter in the breeze.

But when hoisted upright, the flag was supposed to appear to hang from the beam. And the union was now on the right. The flag was replaced. (ABC/AP)
