It looks interesting. I do not have any idea what message it is attempting to convey; however, I want to know more as well.

Well I've just checked on Comingsoon.net for any movie releases which could have some significance but there are none. It's a Tuesday, 9/11 was a Tuesday, which is all I can think of.

I'm gonna keep scooping around for more info, If it's friggin Alex Jones I'ma scream!!

The numbers look more like a specific time reference rather than a date.

And I agree, the numbers look superimposed over the flag kind of like photoshop or something like that.

they're not bogus...at least i can definately vouch for the first one, which my friend took in atlanta today with her cell phone. it does LOOK photoshopped or fake but trust me it's real. she said the numbers were neon-y and looked attached or something.

the other was a pic i found on flickr on a random google search. it looks the same way.

you an me both. so i checked movies being released and CDs being released. nothing seems to fit. maybe video games?

the black flag kinda troubles me and i dunno why.

also, this looks like a time (using colons and all), but it COULD be a date i guess?

I'm sorry. Even with your admission that these are not tampered with, there is no doubt in my mind those numbers are not part of that flag.

Doesn't even look close.

That one looks better. Perhaps I jumped to conclusions to quickly.

Hmmm...

As for being a date, that's next tuesday. Don't kids go back to school that day?

Looks more like the numbers were slapped on with Word Art and printed out.
What time is voting done in your area, or what local artists do you know of? Looks like something a grunge or indie band would use.
Doesn't look professional, pretty hashy really, but we'll see, eh?

So have we discovered what a black flag symbolizes yet?

Is it distress? The burning of our country? Our Military? Our people? It is negative for sure, not one I would proudly fly.
