    Ba'ath party flag captured from the Vice Presidential palace, Below is what the Gentleman told me about how he came across it .


    "The day I got the Baath party flag we were "exploring" the already secured Vice Presidential palace and one of my Soldiers found the flag behind a fake wall thrown in the corner along with a huge stack of AK-47's, He didn,t want the flag and threw it over to me.
    The painted script down the center was translated by a few of our interpreters,all saying the same thing ,"death to all Americans" and "Death to all Jews" .Now I'm not sure if this is true due to the fact that most of our Interpreters lied to us most of the time ,it was really hard to find a good one and when we did they were killed along with their families by the Insurgents."

    Iraqi National Flag

    Below is the story behind this one from my friend :


    "The day I picked up this Iraqi flag was after a huge fight for the capital city of Baghdad. The Iraqi Army ,or what was left of it ,spread out and started doing this hit and run tactic on us and when they became overwhelmed by our firepower they broke contact and decided to blend in with the local populace, so they ditched their uniforms in a pile along with their National flag.
    We were on patrol lending assistance and trying to flank, when my team and I came upon the pile of uniforms,equipment and the flag. I sent in a report to my higher ups then picked through the pile of stuff to see what was left behind and who they might have been, trying to gather some sort of intel to put in my report when I go back to our Company area.
    What floors me was how they just discarded their own National flag like it was nothing to them but a piece of equipment, nothing to be proud of.
    I'd lay down my life for our Flag and they just threw theirs in the filth on the ground. I have no respect for an enemy who cant even show respect for their Nations flag.

    Great news the flag was just translated by an Iraqi to say :

    "The Translation is One Arab Nation with an immortal message, a slogan from the Iraqi Baath Party"
