The Flag Puzzle Solution
The first thing to notice is that the clue is written on a flag used
to communicate in semaphore. In the lower right hand corner of the
flag is a key - a 3x3 grid with the numbers 1 through 8 on the outside
and the letter 'P' in the middle. On the flag pole was written "P=68"
(this is at the top of the digital version of the clue). If you draw
lines from the 'P' to the 6 and the 8 (P=68), you get the same arm
position that signifies the letter 'P' in semaphore. Go to all
instances of letters on the grid and draw in the lines corresponding
to the arm positions that signify that letter in semaphore. If you do
this, you get the following.
