Introduction

The Legion of Super-Heroes occupies a future (31st-century) setting in the DC comics universe. A recent reboot (Teenage Revolution, vol. 5, #1-6, by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson, December 2005) recasts the Legion in a somewhat political light, as the title suggests; it not only fights supervillains, but acts as an agent of (generally unwelcome) change and idealism in a galactic society that has ossified into a rigid, sterile utopia.

Flags of the Legion of Super-Heroes

Frst flag of the Legion of Super-Heroes

The official flag of the Legion of Super-Heroes can be seen at Comic Treadmill. It's of indestructable material and luminous, so it can be seen for hundreds of miles.
Aleksandar Nemet, 22 January 2010

The white lines visible in the image are probably not a fringe, but are rather meant to represent the fact that – as the member in that panel says – the flag glows.
Eugene Ipavec, 22 January 2010

From the look of that picture (judging from the super-heroes' costumes), the episode of the flag must have been published well before I started to read the comic in the late 1970s. They did however retain that letter L as a sign throughout the years I was reading it, but without any planets or anything around it.

Later flags of the Legion of Super-Heroes

The emblem of the Legion is a an L inscribed in a circle, with a fireball or comet rising diagonally from the L's joint. (Example.)

Several flags of the Legion appear (in what are more-or-less political-party contexts, being flown by the Legion's non-powered followers camped out in front of their HQ on Earth). (Examples, example.) The principal design appears to be: red with the Legion emblem offset toward the hoist.

Sponsor design

A funny interlude has the Legion's leader pay a visit to the very rich girl with no powers who funds the entire Legion out of her trust fund to annoy her parents. While he is there, she asks him whether the redesign of the Legion's flag she had suggested has been implemented yet; the leader has to sheepishly admit that they cannot decide which picture of her to use.

Jungle King

This flag, which can be seen at Comic Treadmill, belongs to a supervillain called "Jungle King." It's a quartered flag, green-red-yellow-blue, with the black-and-white head of a different cranky-looking animal in profile in each one – some kind of bird, a hippopotamus, a theropod dinosaur and something like a moa with eyestalks? Trippy.

Unnamed «many civilizations»

Various flags of galaxies and universes are shown halfmasted at Comic Threadmill.
Aleksandar Nemet, 22 January 2010

The caption identifies these as flags of civilizations throughout a dozen galaxies and far-flung island universes, lowered in mourning when the Legion member Lighting Lad is killed in action. They're rather nice designs, too, generally speaking.
