My first reaction was that it's a reunion of the "Flags of Our Fathers" group, but on reflection it can't be, as there were six of them.

Then I can only guess that they're standing directly BELOW a nuclear test?

I think I read about this recently. Is it that neither of the countries want the disputed territory due to the liabilities that come with it? Unfortunately I can't remember the countries involved although I think they are in Africa.

Is this the recently resolved one between India & Bangladesh where one enclave was inside another which was inside a further one?

Is it the civilised one involving Rockall where each side periodically visits and replaces the other's flag with their own just for show?
