Flip flyout closebutton around without changing position

I'm trying to flip the arrow to point to the other direction in my flyout without changing the Position to left.

enter image description here

Right now this is how I'm creating my flyout

<Controls:Flyout Name="New_Flyout"
Header="Select Account Type"
IsOpen="False"
Theme="Light"
Position="Right"
HorizontalContentAlignment="Left"
HorizontalAlignment="Left"
Margin="0,0,0,0"
Width="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType=Controls:MetroWindow}, Path=ActualWidth}"
AnimateOpacity="True"
AnimateOnPositionChange="True"

Answer

Add a new Trigger to the default HeaderTemplate:

    <DataTemplate x:Key="HeaderTemplate1"
              x:Shared="False">
        <DockPanel x:Name="dpHeader"
               Margin="10,25,10,10"
               VerticalAlignment="Center"
               LastChildFill="True">
            <Button x:Name="nav"
                Command="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}, Path=CloseCommand, Mode=OneWay}"
                DockPanel.Dock="Left"
                Style="{DynamicResource MetroCircleButtonStyle}"
                Visibility="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}, Path=CloseButtonVisibility}"
                Height="40"
                Width="40"

                Foreground="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}, Path=Foreground}"
                FontSize="16"
                VerticalAlignment="Bottom">
                <i:Interaction.Triggers>

                                                 Value="False" />
                    </i:EventTrigger>
                </i:Interaction.Triggers>
                <Rectangle Width="20"

                                      Canvas.Top="15"

                   FontSize="{StaticResource FlyoutHeaderFontSize}"
                   Margin="15,0,0,0"
                   VerticalAlignment="Center" />
        </DockPanel>
        <DataTemplate.Triggers>
            <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Position, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}}"
                     Value="Right">
                <Setter TargetName="nav"
                    Property="LayoutTransform">

                    Property="DockPanel.Dock"
                    Value="Right" />
                <Setter TargetName="PART_BackButton"
                    Property="TextAlignment"
                    Value="Right" />
                <Setter TargetName="PART_BackButton"
                    Property="Margin"
                    Value="0,0,15,0" />
                <Setter TargetName="nav"
                    Property="LayoutTransform">

                        <ScaleTransform ScaleX="-1" />
                    </Setter.Value>
                </Setter>
            </DataTrigger>
            <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Position, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}}"
                     Value="Top">
                <Setter TargetName="dpHeader"
                    Property="Margin"
                    Value="10" />
                <Setter TargetName="nav"
                    Property="LayoutTransform">
                    <Setter.Value>
                        <RotateTransform Angle="-90" />
                    </Setter.Value>
                </Setter>
            </DataTrigger>
            <DataTrigger Binding="{Binding Position, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type Controls:Flyout}}}"
                     Value="Bottom">
                <Setter TargetName="dpHeader"
                    Property="Margin"

                <Setter TargetName="nav"
                    Property="LayoutTransform">
                    <Setter.Value>
                        <RotateTransform Angle="90" />
                    </Setter.Value>
                </Setter>
            </DataTrigger>
        </DataTemplate.Triggers>
    </DataTemplate>

And then apply it to your Flyout:

            <Controls:Flyout Name="New_Flyout" 
                         HeaderTemplate="{StaticResource HeaderTemplate1}"
                         Header="Select Account Type" 
                         IsOpen="False"
                         Theme="Dark"
                         Position="Right" 
                         HorizontalContentAlignment="Left"
                         HorizontalAlignment="Left"
                         Margin="0,0,0,0"
                         Width="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource FindAncestor, AncestorType=Controls:MetroWindow}, Path=ActualWidth}"
                         AnimateOnPositionChange="True">

I used 45 degrees just to make it clear, but for your purposes you want to use 180:
