Item #: SCP-1776

Object Class: Safe

Laconic Containment Procedures: SCP-1776 is to be kept in a secure locker.

Laconic Description: SCP-1776 is a Yugoslavian flag that is normal unless viewed by a person with a history of military service. If such people see the flag, they will perceive it as the flag of whatever country they served for and will become aggressive and try acquire and display SCP-1776 on the nearest flagpole or otherwise widely-visible position. This can cause a chain reaction if visible enough, as other military members will see it and try to seize it themselves.

Additional Context: The number 1776 is commonly associated with patriotism in the United States and thus matches well with the article’s themes of hyperpatriotism and nationalism.
