''Flag'' is a series by ''{{Gasaraki}}'' director Ryousuke Takahashi about a small central Asian country called Uddiyana and its civil war. Japanese photographer Saeko Shirasu has been sent to take pictures of the conflict and the newly formed "[[UnitedNationsIsASuperpower United Nations Forces]]" war machine's efforts to bring peace to the region. During a battle in the country's capital city, the local militia groups and the UNF drive out the insurgent groups and scale a statue in the city square to raise a modified version of the UN's flag. Saeko, attempting to get a picture of two women praying on a rooftop, catches the flag in the picture as well, and photo circulates around the world, inspiring a message of peace and unity for the warring factions, and even spurs discussions of a possible cease-fire agreement.

* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: Will sometimes contain typos[[hottip:*:"shutduwn"]], but the large blocks of English text that appear throughout the series on newspaper articles and HAVWC schematics are grammatically sound enough to fall out of GratuitousEnglish territory.

''Flag'' is a series that greatly modernizes the war story. It portrays a future where the victor of a war is no longer the country with the biggest army or the best weapons, but the country that can best control the minds of its citizens with propaganda like Saeko's flag picture. The HAVWC units are endlessly schematized and their every function is described in detail, but they only see combat on a handful of occasions. The efforts of the UNF to recover a single flag is the least implicitly "realistic" aspect of the show[[hottip:*:Although there are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquilifer historical]] [[http://history1800s.about.com/od/civilwar/f/Civil-War-Battle-Flags.htm precedents]], but emphasizes the show's idea that propaganda and the ability to make people rise to action is what wins a war.
