I saw a flag that looks exactly like the Palestinian flag- same colors
and shapes, except the base of the triangle is situated along the length of the
flag (instead of the width part) and the point of the triangle reaches to the
other side of the flag (unlike the Palestinian flag where it just goes about 1/4
of the way in). Someone had it in New York City.

I live in the L.A. area, and saw a flag on a sticker on the back of someone's
car. I did not recognize it at all, I was hoping you or somebody else may know
it offhand. (I tried using the flag identifier, but couldn't find it.) The flag
had a black hoist, with 3 horizontal stripes (red, white, and blue). In the
black area, there was some sort of design in yellow. I have attached an
illustration (without the yellow design). The car sped past me, I really didn't
get a very good look at that yellow design.

I would be almost certain that this flag is a version of the unofficial 'Benelux'
flag. The unidentified yellow design in the hoist would then be the yellow
rampant lion. Compare this described design with the design under 'Benelux' on
the FOTW site and you will see what I mean. I have also seen a similar flag
design used in the shipmate flagchart to indicate Dutch/Flemish? language (black
lion rampant on yellow field).

I have recently acquired this stickpin featuring a very nice looking enamel
red and white flag. I believe it may be an American nautical flag of some kind
but I cannot find anything about it on any website. If you could identify it for
me it would be much appreciated.

Isn't the stickpin with the S and the stripes an old flag of
Sheraton Hotels or Stauffer foods?

I am a volunteer for the William G. Mather Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. We are
trying to identify this flag that was in our collection. I have been through
your website and could not find it. Any clue as to what it is for? There was
some question as to whether it might be an old N. M. Paterson flag, but it does
not appear in the Canadian Flag list. I am beginning to suspect that it may be a
yacht club flag. Any help will be appreciated.

I came across this striking and beautiful UFE displayed in a storefront in
Atlanta. I suspect it's the flag of those African-Americans (and others) who
identify with the concept that the ancient Egyptian civilizations were black
African in origin. The store owner explained some of the symbolism, but I can't
find any other provenance.

The rings and fringe makes it sound like a unit colours. With the horn
and the fact that Reichpost apparently used blue as a distinctive
colour for their post box and uniform, could it be the flag used by
post office employees on parade?

image provided by Paul Van Vactor, 4 July 2006Can you identify a logo - could be a steamship line. Here's the flag logo - it is on a restaurant china style gravy boat.
I am trying to locate information about a house flag with the letters BH on
it. This flag is depicted on scrimshaw that may be pre-civil war. It is carved
flying on a tall ship and does not have a straight side (similar to < on the
edge). Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I live in Worthing, West Sussex, England, and just recently, on a flag pole,
under the union jack, a black flag with a white central disc has appeared. Do
you know what this signifies?

I have a plate that belonged to my parents that has a flag on it and I am
unable to find out which one it is. It is a yellow back ground with a black
diamond shape and a black spot in the centre.
