The final incarnation of Flags is the gold edition available only to buyers in person at the 2007 Santa’s Ghetto in Bethlehem, where 112 gold edition was released with all of them signed. The silver version was released at Santa’s Ghetto in London in 2006.
Unsigned edition also exists, printed on chromalux paper of an edition of 1000. An extremely limited number of silver Flags were also available on formica from Lazarides. Printed on hard board, these were signed (with Banksy’s signature scratched into the surface) from an edition of 20.
The piece is a caricature of the famous world war two image, depicting US soldiers raising the American flag during the bloody battle of Iwo Jima.
