Flying the Flag is the final mission of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. The player can play as NATO or PLA however the mission plays the same as both sides. The goal of the mission is to stop two missiles before the timer runs out.. The mission is a little hard in and the enemy is not NATO or PLA but instead The Burning Flag. When the player completes the goal one more missile is active, which can only be taken out by killing Commander 31.
"This is a no-brainer. He's got the codes to launch one ICBM at a location within the US and two more within Europe. Get in there, disable both launch silos and drop Commander 31 like a bad habit. Get all that done, or it's all over. If the balloon goes up on this one, it's a long, cold nuclear winter all round. You have full authority to do whatever is necessary to eliminate this threat."
— NATO Mission Description
"This is both simple and critical. He controls two intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are sitting in their launch silos. Stop the launch at all costs! Disable both silos and kill Commander 31 without mercy. If you fail, none of us have anything left to fight for, or to live for. Therefore, you will not fail! Go quickly now!"
