How to Put Flags on Facebook

If you want to add a flag to your Facebook profile, you could upload a picture of a flag to the photos section of your profile. However, that limits your flag display to one place -- your photo gallery. If you want a more versatile placement of flags, use a Facebook app. Apps are third-party programs that you can use to add elements such as flags to your profile.

    Navigate to the Facebook App Directory, http://www.facebook.com/apps/directory.php, and type "flags" into the "Search Apps" text box.
