I know I can't be the only one COMPLETELY flummoxed. Anyone have a hint as to solving method so I can get started?

Don't bother with the hint.

Notice the last flag doesn't have any letters on it. That might be important.

Didn't use the last flag as a clue, but now I can see why it's there.

For the record, I've seen what happens when you put the answer in water. Big bada boom!

I disagree, the hint is (could've been) useful. Note for whom the puzzle is designed.

Is that first flag from Russia? If so, then why is it upside-down?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Yep, I tried to identify all of the flags (and I did get 10 of 15 correct without the use of an atlas). This delayed me in solving the puzzle.

Trying to work out anagrams...not sure which will be best or which way to go...nothing's jumping out yet.

That's what I was afraid of....'***REMOVING...who knew it was right***' and 'all meat battles' weren't getting me anywhere.

So it's not an anagram...it's not required to determine the origin of the flags...hrmmm....turning my head to try and look at it in a different way

When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with
badge
much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

Thanks for that...I could have sworn I already tried that one (as well as abbreviations)...I must've typed it wrong.

There is a clue in the puzzle to show you how to anagram properly.

I found Last Male Battle but that was wrong... then I noticed the last flag had no letters. Tried to identify it when it clicked....

Forget the vexilological comment and focus on the puzzle.

Even though they didn't help solve the puzzle:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Serbia, Japan, Canada, Congo
Chile, Lesotho, Seychelles, Algeria
Morroco, Czech, Naurau, Singapore
Portugal, Philippines, France, ????


I got the anagram through brute force, but I'd like more detail on how the layout is supposed to help.

That one is the new Serbian flag. Yep I looked them all up. For future reference http://www.37.co.yu/fi/ is a great site to look up flags.
