    Its always been a big thing for the military to take photos of the enemies flags captured in all conflicts.
    I find them really interesting and the amount of the interweb is astonishing.
    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread here to collate as many as we can find.

    Here are the first ten and many more will follow I am sure :)
