"I've seen your flag on the marble arch"

This reports a finding that the flag was originally yellow: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/25/arts/ ... nandbelief.

Much of history is filled with pillage and destruction. Hopefully one day there'll be the polar opposite.

There's been discussion on the forum on alternate interpretations on what the song may be referring to with
the "flag on the marble arch."
