The X-Men are a superhero team in Marvel Comics, created in 1963 by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. They are the protagonists of the comics series X-Men and the comics series Uncanny X-Men. There was also an 1992-1997 animated TV series, and from 2000-onward there's a series of live-action movies.

X-Men flag

A flag of the team appeared on the cover of Uncanny X-Men #492, of the 2007-8 series "Messiah CompleX" (detail): white with a red X in a ring, this being the longtime logo of the team. I'm pretty sure the yellow background is just an example of overly dramatic lighting - the overall illustration is set against a sunset or something.

The cover is shown online at the Marvel Database, and the cover-art at Hero Realm. Note that the flag in it is also very very long so as to billow extra-dramatically, another flourish I did not bother reproducing.

Department of Mutant Affairs

This flag was offered on eBay as a flag for the Department of Mutant Affairs from the Fox television series X-Men show. But as this flag is obviously non-animated, it would instead be from one of the movies.

Flag of Genosha

The flag of Genosha, from the 1992-1997 TV series "X-Men", is visible as a car flag on the Genoshan presidential limousine in episode 7, Slave Island. The flag resembles that of Bangladesh, but with a larger disc and a highly stylized black eagle inside it.
