Flipping a Logo within a block, without mirroring it.

I'm trying to make a Dynamic Block for handicap parking spaces (attached).


I have a flip action so that I can switch the direction of the linear array.  The problem is when I flip the block, the handicap logo is mirrored (obviously....).


Is there a way to mirror just the location of the logo, instead of mirroring the location AND the logo?


Would it be possible to make a block with the handicap logo and lock the X scale value to 1 ?...


Any help would be appreciated... worst comes to worst, i'll remove the flip action and replace it with a rotate action.

Please refer to attached DWG.


As you may notice there is a move command on the disabled symbol. When using the flip command instead of selecting the disabled symbol, select the move parameter instead. This will stop the symbol from mirroring.
