Re: Flags of Mystery

^Star Trek was a very collaborative production, as I recall. They didn't impose strict segregation of responsibilities; people were free to contribute wherever they could. If they needed a flag in a hurry and Theiss happened to have some spare bits of cloth lying around, I'm sure he would've pitched in. (There was a similar job flexibility in modern Trek, with things like Doug Drexler going from makeup to graphics, visual-effects supervisor Dan Curry contributing his martial-arts expertise, or video playback supervisor Denise Okuda serving as medical consultant.)

According to this page ( ) at Flags of the World, the supposed Cuban Flag is just blue and white horizontal stripes with red streamers.

You can't see the white star above Kirk's shoulder, but there is definitely a red triangle.

Re: Flags of Mystery

I lurk threads like this waiting for GSchnitzer to chime in. He probably has reproductions of those flags in his closet.

...Of course, if we squinted just a bit, we could be seeing these two hanging from the same pole:
