Former Golden Knights member Chris Wagner knew most of the Fun Flag history, and the NSL News documented it on 13 September 2006. Then it was followed by many updates, the last one on 22 October 2016.
Two years without a Fun Flag update is a long time, even though it is exactly the time period between two world meets. However, the Fun Flag is supposed to help bringing the right spirit to as many events as possible, and the long silence raised concerns about the well-being of the Fun Flag.
The recent Fun Flag investigation also revealed that there have been more Fun Flag activities than reported to the NSL News in the meantime.
It had the next outing at the international ESL Championship 2017 which took place in Saarlouis, Germany, last year. There the Flying Cowboys, a German Rookie Class team, took possession and kept it. The new team needed some education about the purpose of the Fun Flag, so they would release it and allow it to travel to the next event.
It was back flying at the German Nationals this year at a different location before it finally made the trip across the world to Australia. It was properly exposed to the public at the event site, and some of the judges saw it first at the fitness gym.
The judges surely knew the rules and had it back flying in the world meet air shortly after capturing it. The current location and possession of the Fun Flag is unknown...
