Originally two threads by Thande and Magnificate that were merged together, in imitation of the Map Thread. The two threads' demographics largely overlap. Flag Thread II was started May 5, 2009 and since then, there have been two more. The latter is currently active.
Roster of Flag Threads
Flag Thread IV - Opened by PiratePartyist on April 1, 2014. The first Flag Thread not started by a mod or admin. Unlike the first map thread begun by a non-moderater, there was no arguement. Baconheimer had the second post, meaning he had the second post in two consecutive flag threads.
