Flags at Half Mast (or Not)

The Greek consulate arond the corner has both its flags at half mast - I assume because of the terrible fires they're having, and the many dozens of casualties.

Both flags? Yes: the Greek one, and the EU one.

The Italians, around the other corner, not only haven't lowered their flag, they haven't lowered the EU one, either. And a block away in a third direction, the Swedes only have one flag to begin with, even though they also are staunch members of the EU.

Someday someone's going to have to work out the protocol on this.
