carre externe=outside edge (of the shoe)

what makes it carre externe is that his main foot (the one which is pushing on a foothold) is placed on the outside edge.




btw as a non-native englis speaker i'm confused by the flag.
I've always understood that you flag when you push with a foot on the opposite side than the hand which is reaching.
(eg, i'm reaching with my right hand and push with my left foot, while my right leg flags)

now i have no english term for when you push with one foot on the same side of the reach and the foot is on its outside edge. Probably the most common move on overhanging terrain. Still a flag?.
(if it's on the inside edge it's a rockover , am i right?)
