(2) and (4) give another flag the honours over that of the country i.e.
are higher on the pole. This is incorrect flag etiquette. There is also an
additional error in (4) in that the UK, whose flag is shown, but actually does not
have a women's cricket team - the flag should be as it is in (3), since
it was England playing.
the mistake in (1), (2) twice, and, (4) is that the teams playing are not the New
Zealand Cricket Board XI, the England Cricket Board XI - well you get
the drift - they are New Zealand and England national sides etc. Had
these flags been in the correct order all would have been well.
You could add
that in (1), even if the flags had been in the correct order, the
country flag should always be the same size or larger than any
subordinate flag. Only (3)
is error free (except possibly in the flag sizes - hard to be sure).
