As a little joke, some levi niners started using flags on their customer’s Jira board. The practice of adding flags to Jira tickets was not very refined and was mostly for amusement. So, one team member wrote a script that would change all flags on Jira board with images or moving gifs. The flag of any given week was based on silly internal team jokes. 

For example, when a product owner went on vacation, the flag of that week was his profile picture to express how much the team missed him.

“The architect from the customer’s side liked the flag idea so much that he created a repository to save all the weekly flags.” – Miroslava Brkic
