So, the iCompositions Flag, something that started out as an idea to unite a global music community is slowly turning into a story of mystery, suspense and intrigue... Will we ever see it again? And if so, when? Why has it taken so long?

An Urban Legend in the making, The Flag has brought about varied feelings from the iCompositions community, feelings of happiness, unity and gratitude combined with frustration, worry and many many questions. The high times and low times have been accompanied with photographs of the lucky recipients, some music, humorous graphics and plenty of chat in the forums...

The Flag may only be "a bit of cloth" to some, but to those who have signed it, written in its book and held The Flag in their hands, it acts as a symbol, a physical, tangible link to a community of like minded friends and associates who are in some case literally half a world a way.

We now know that the last recipient of the Flag, Jan Korteweg is alive and well and so is the Flag. We are currently in the process of trying to recover it from The Netherlands, from where it will return to it creator, @Trilobite2 in Maryland, USA before making its final journey to our illustrious leader @PM via @JL - We hope it gets there.

Like the Flag, this song has travelled across 3 continents and we would like to thank everyone who has got involved in this. It was @RubyDubidoux who suggested the Flag needed a song, so we decided to make it a great iComp Community Collab. We would also like to thank @Trilobite2 and @becwil for their efforts in creating the Flag and getting it to take its first steps out into the big wide world. We hope we can bring it home for you!

The song is clear and I do like the lead vocals. Nice harmonies/chorus. Memorable for sure. The acoustic sounds nice.
Nice balanced mix. The bass is doing a nice job as well. The flag.
Yes... I like that "sending out an s.o.s part too. (The Police) Now that's a cool addition."
