I was just wondering if anyone knew what the flags on the back of the robots in co-op actually meant? I was playing as P-Body and had the flag on my back for the whole time as far as I could tell, but atlas definitely has a flag poll as well... any ideas?

Flags are items you can put on your robot yourself. Common examples include games from the Potato Sack. –  user56 May 15 '11 at 20:54

If you select "Robot Enrichment" on the main menu, you can go to the Portal 2 Store, where you can purchase flair to make your robot look unique.

Flags are one of these items, and, specifically, those who bought the potato sack got flags with the logo of the game they played the most.

Completing the single player also awards a flag. –  CruelCow May 15 '11 at 21:48

@ronan Forman: True, the flag I was thinking about you get for doing a high-five. theportalwiki.com/wiki/WCC_Flag –  CruelCow May 15 '11 at 23:03
