Flag is the Luftschiff banner.

Flag not listed as that one Duncan, and you should think again about not knowing the album

Oh, and the flag exists in a brighter coloured form - I'll take either answer

Dave ......... Just off to the boat show now - wife decided not to come -  :-))

Flags of the World says it is the Zeppelin company flag....the more colourful version(whites instead of yellow) was the Airship Corps(military) but...that would only be during the Nazi era.  Hmmmm I`ll have to have a look elsewhere to see where my cap badge version comes in perhaps pre -Nazi.  I have a passing interest in the airships of the period and visit the Friedrichshafen museum often. Modern versions fly from there and you can have a flight in one for about 400 euros :((   Champaign included !  Music, I was swooning over Joan Baez and agreeing with Bob Dylan`s protests in those days, rock was too "Yank" for me ( I worked for the USAF then and wasn't too impressed with things transatlantic )  The Zeppelin company is still operating making construction machinery in conjunction with Caterpillar(USA). The Zeppelin NT company  makes the modern NT , new technology, airships. See the advertising on the model. Enjoy the boat show...you DID take a camera of course? O0

I would think that the yellow of the picture is just aging of the white in the flag. Found another image here.

Arrow, rock too "Yank"!!!! With bands such as The Who, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Rolling Stones and Black Sabbath????

The album is of course Led Zeppelin, their debut album

Well there you go Duncan you did get the flag
http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/de$dzr.html
German Zeppelin Company Flag
but I would have taken
http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/de$dzr.html#mis
Zeppelin Corps Flag
and as the album is called 'Led Zeppelin' as Ian spotted - you had it but threw it away

There's an awful big 'Folk' influence deep in that 'Rock' - LZ's mother's milk for me.
Saw LZ live in Liverpool & Black Sabbath too in 1970's, later saw I the Who.
Never did see Deep Purple ..... and I refused to pay a fiver for a David Bowie show. :embarrassed:

Years later I got a free AC/DC ticket - I hadn't been a fan but that show blew me away O0

That was fun anyway linking the two.

Things will be a bit stretched over the next few weeks, but I will keep and eye on the flags all the same! :-))

Strange that certain flags give a certain feel. First choice was also S. America with no luck and then onto former Soviet states. Must be the brash, flamboyant style.....

Dynamo might have been a good clue for Tblisi

I've pm'd Bob K to have a go before we all get too inbred here
I wonder how many people tune in to the forums various games?

The only Dynamo I`d heard of was the blast from the past Moscow. Not a footy fan sorry :((  Yes agreed we seem to be a wee bit incestuous but I think a few people read the answers just out of curiosity.  I`m like that with the Name the Ship quiz. Lots of interesting facts turn up that you`d never set out to find otherwise. Lets just plod on a bit.  Your turn or any offers from outside the magic circle ?
