Why do you think that our country thought it was necessary to make a flag? What is the point of a flag? Historically, flags were used as a symbol in battles, like the one below. It was thought to be used by Iran in a battle in the third millennium B.C. (3600- 2100 BC).THAT'S A LONG TIME AGO!!! It showed that the Iranian army was approaching the enemy. 

What different purposes do you think a flag serves now? Do flags only represent countries? Can flags be used in other ways? Where do you see flags most often? Please make a comment to contribute to this discussion and then comment on someone else's comment as well.
