When arriving at St. James's Palace in 1785, John Adams and the audience glance up to see the Union Flag (same as the Union Jack, but on land). As a royal palace, the Union Flag would not have flown there before 1997. As His Majesty was present, the Royal Standard would have flown; in his absence, the flagstaff would have been bare. Prompted by the controversy over the propriety of showing remorse over the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, British royal vexillological protocol was altered in 1997 such that the Union Flag now flies over royal residences when the monarch is absent; however, the Royal Standard still flies in place of the Union Flag when the sovereign is present.
