I have a burning quest that I cannot find the answer to:What do the two flags outside of the flight paths in various cities and towns mean and/or stand for? There are either two red flags, two blue flags, a red and a blue, etc. They seem to change every day or week, I cannot remember. I have looked online and have not found any information regarding this. Thanks, love the article.

I'm pretty sure they represent the faction and then the sub-faction of flight masters. For example, in Stormwind, there's the standard blue Alliance flag, and the red Gryphon Master flag right next to it, whereas the Night Elves might have a different flag for the Hippogryph Masters. I noticed Undead Bat Handlers have their own yellow/brown-ish flag with bat wings on it. And I don't think they change at times, they're just different in different locations depending on who the flight master is.

See, I swear that I have seen two red ones at one time. Actually, I am sure of it. Here is a picture of what I am talking about: http://tiny.cc/dn2rzThanks for the reply!

They're both the Gryphon flag. I was talking about the smaller ones on the left.http://my.jetscreenshot.com/2348/20100721-ha8x-170kb.jpg

One is the Alliance flag (the lion) the other is the gryphon flag.And holy mother of God what is wrong with the graphics in that screenshot? Everything is brightly lit and yellow. That's not what it looks like at all. Looks like someone has some messed up setting.

It's from the map viewer. I can't login to the game until I go home.

Ah, I was going to say, the lighting is all screwed up.
