A user posted a question asking to identify a flag. A discussion started in the comments as to whether or not this is on-topic.
As the identify-this description says:
Finding the name of some place, food, monument, or other travel-related thing.
I suppose a flag is indeed a "travel-related thing".
Personally, though, I'm unsure whether to consider this on-topic or off-topic, so I'm posting this on Meta to get the opinions of others.
Additional comment: The image posted in the example gives no results with reverse image search engines, so I would not downvote for lack of research. But if someone posted a very clear image of a flag that could easily and successfully be put through a reverse image search (such as Tineye or Google), then I would probably consider downvoting for lack of research. But that is beside the point, I'm asking whether it's generally on-topic to ask for identification of flags.
Also, does it depend on the flag and/or context? If yes, then what constitutes an acceptable question?
By the way, I really wanted to tag this with flagging, but I restrained myself. It was hard.
