Thank you to the Sullivan Family for providing the following information:
Mill Wright Tim Wighting has advised us about the protocol for windmill sails during a period of National Mourning for our beloved Queen Elizabeth.
You will notice the sails are slightly offset--this is the sign of mourning.
An offset in the opposite direction is a sign of rejoicing.
No offset is a sign of a Day of Rest or distress on a working day.
