Don't ask me. :) I don't wave flags, and I don't sing anthems, but if they are used (on certain holidays for example), fine with me. Here is a "not-so-obvious" flag on euro circulation coins, by the way: The French mid-range pieces (10, 20 and 50 cent) have the Tricolore background; in heraldry, horizontal stripes represent blue while vertical stripes mean red. So you see "blue" on the left, "white" in the middle, and "red" on the right - like on the flag.

Ive red during childhood that when representing color in black and white map, red should always be vertical stripes, and blue horizontal stripes.

There must have been rules for other colors as well, but what are they? Is it from heraldry? Arts? Or cartography?

See here. :) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tincture_(heraldry)#Metals - particularly the "Metals" and "Colours" sections.
