Flags are used to stake your claim. Most commonly used on the moon, however they can be placed on any block.. They are purely asthetic, and serve no real purpose.
To place a flag you must first craft one(see below), then once selected hold down the mouse button until the flag moves to its farthest position, then release. The flag will then attach to the ground in the direction in which it was placed.
Flags are crafted using three flag poles and four canvas. This will produce a white flag with a photo of Steve's face on either side. Different color flags can be created by adding its appropriate color dye. All flags can be made this way, excluding the American flag which can only be obtained in creative mode.
- If you hook a flag with a fishing rod and let go, it will fly like a magestic bird.
