FLAG is an anime directed by Ryosuke Takahashi June 6, 2006 to March 2, 2007. The anime revolve around the titular flag (a UN flag in war-torn Uddiyana) and Saeko Shirasu the photo-journalist who became an instant celebrity after taking a photo of civilians raising the flag. The flag became a symbol of peace but before a peace agreement could be achieved the flag was stolen by armed extremist group.

The UN decide to send in a SDC (pronounced as Seedac – Special Development Command) unit to retrieve the flag. Saeko Shirasu was offered the job to be the front-line journalist for the mission. The story are told from her camera point-of-view in documentary style narrative.

I have only watched episode 3 that came with November Newtype USA and found that the anime is quite interesting hence the reason I got the DVD. It’s a bonus that it came with a nice artbox too ^^.
