In the episode The Menagerie, during Spock's court proceedings, there are two displayed flags flanking Kirk and Mendez.
I got to wondering about these, I've never seen either displayed unfurled, like in a behind the scenes photo. I've read that one is intended to be a political flag and the other to be the Enterprise's flag/emblem. But which is which?
The one on the left kind of looks like the national flag of Cuba.
Anyone have any pictures of these? Where did the props department get them (or make them), are they from some other older show and what do you think they symbolize?
