The flags in the courtroom are reversed; the flag of the United States should be positioned to its own right of any other flag or standard, even on an American military installation on foreign soil. Also U.S. Army flags or standards, even the National Flag, should have spearhead pole finials instead of eagle pole finials. Eagles are reserved for civilian flags and the President of the United States.
