Why does the orientation cube not align with the model?

I use SolidWorks and Inventor daily but just recognized a confusing aspect to SolidWorks orientation cube. To visualize the cube design intent I created a box with a front cover colored blue. What confuses me is when selecting to view the left or right cube faces the model appears opposite to what was selected. When selecting the left cube view the box cover is on the right side and when selecting the right cube view the model box cover is on the left side. Shouldn't the box cover align with the cube orientation? Why does the blue cube face not align with the blue box cover?
