I was pretty sure this was the flag that we were going to use after the apolcalypse. But it looks like al-Minufiya (located in Egypt’s central Nile Valley) has broken into that vault and started to fly the flag. Gears are a common emblem on Egyptian flags. Second only to ancient Egyptian symbols (but I couldn’t find a mummy flag.) Also depicted on this flag are a smokestack (or obelisk/pillar?) three bird (perhaps seagulls, but most likely doves,) and a golden olive wreath. The gear seems to be on fire. My best guess is that this flag represents a particular moment in al-Minufiya history: the day of the industrial accident at the gear factory, which burned all the olive branches and smokestacks in town. Three birds were the only survivors, and apparently designed the flag themselves by pecking in Arabic Morse code.
