The American flag is a powerful visual cue representing patriotism. More often, and as seen in the covers here, it is used to raise questions about American identity and politics.

We cover the flag theme in 2 posts. The first post (here) has album covers mostly before the year 2000. The second post (this one) has album covers mostly after the year 2000. A few of the album covers after 2000 deal with the 9/11 attacks, whether as tribute albums or against the American policies that were a response to the attack.
