Is this a true story? Is the "I", actually you?

Multiple flags of one country? Flags of various, different countries? Is the American flag relevant? Semaphore flags? An electronic method of highlighting something for one's attention? (For example, some email servers allow one to "flag" an email for just this purpose.) Metaphorical 'red flags' that indicate something to be wrong?

Instead of being happy, were you / the person who was happy: sad? disappointed? angry? confused? dead/dying/severely injured?

Do the flags indicate that something has happened? Or is about to? Or rather does the flags' presence only show the situation to be different than first believed (and so it was a mistake/misunderstanding that led to the happiness in the first place)?

Is this flag a normal flag; ie what we normally think of when we think of flags?

Signal flags? Flags on a flagpole? Flags flying? Handheld flags? Any national flags involved? Flags of a smaller section of a country (state/province/county/SSR/shire etc)? Flags denoting allegiance to something? To a group? A concept? A military or paramilitary unit?

Is this flag a normal flag; ie what we normally think of when we think of flags? Please clarify with a definition.

Signal flags? Flags on a flagpole? Flags flying? Handheld flags? Any national flags involved? Flags of a smaller section of a country (state/province/county/SSR/shire etc)? Flags denoting allegiance to something? To a group? A concept? A military or paramilitary unit? No to all.

Number fo flags relevant? The exact number isn't important. If so, more than: 2? 5? 10? 37? Between 10 and 37. 101? 768? Are they real physical flags? Yes. Or flags painted onto a surface? No. Are you seeing them directly? Yes. Or through some sort of viewing device? So no.

Are they country flags? State flags? Any politics involved? The military? Boy scouts? Are people carrying the flags? Are ships involved? No to all.

Are they white flags? Pirate flags? Are you watching a: show? Movie? Parade? Are the flags: on the ground? Folded? Packaged? did you expect/hope for: no flags? Different flags?
Are they flags with the word "bang", ejected from toy guns? Are the flags silly? Or are they making something else silly?

Can the flags be flown or waved? Are they made of cloth? Some other natural material? Do they have eyeholes? Are they visible from a distance? Are they corporeal, or perhaps composed of electrons instead? Are they images of flags rather than the flags themselves?

Are they outside or inside? Close to the ground or above it? Is anything besides the flags relevant - people? Animals? Plants? Weather? Time of day?

Are they white flags? No. Pirate flags? No. Are you watching a: show? Movie? Parade? None of these. Are the flags: on the ground? Folded? Packaged? None of these. did you expect/hope for: no flags? This one. Different flags?
Are they flags with the word "bang", ejected from toy guns? No. Are the flags silly? No. Or are they making something else silly? No.

Geographical location relevant? No.
Were you in the US? Yes.
In a city? Yope, but as I said, not relevant.

Can the flags be flown or waved? No. Are they made of cloth? No. Some other natural material? Define "natural." Do they have eyeholes? No. Are they visible from a distance? No. Are they corporeal, or perhaps composed of electrons instead? Most things one can see are composed of electrons, but yes, they are corporeal in the usual sense. Are they images of flags rather than the flags themselves? No.

Are they outside or inside? The latter. Close to the ground or above it? Depends on your definition of "close" and not really relevant. Is anything besides the flags relevant - people? Yesish. Animals? Plants? Weather? Time of day? No to rest, but other things are relevant.

Are the flags in space? Outer space? No.

Wild guess:
Are these the flags sometimes attached to skewers or toothpicks stuck into food, to make them more visible, and you were unhappy because you were already starting to bite into the food when you saw them?

In the likely event this isn't it, are the flags one solid color each? or are there multiple colors on each? Relevant?
Did you need to remove the flags? or alter them in some other way?

Did you find the flags: ugly? Tacky? Unnecessary? Blasphemous? Dangerous? Have you worked against there being flags? Did you hope there would be something else instead? Or just an absence of flags? Is this a one time event? Or something that happens with regular intervals? Or irregular? If so, were there flags at earlier occasions? Were you disappoint then as well?

Did you find the flags: wasteful? Inappropriate? Wrong? Stupid? Annoying? Dissonant with the purpose/spirit of the event? This is closest, for SVVs of "event." Was it an anti-flag rally? Vehicles involved? Were the flags supposed to make it more festive? Is it a funeral? No to all these.

I saw something which made me happy. Then I saw the flags, and I was disappointed, because they showed the situation to be different than I had initially believed. I would not have been disappointed had the flags not been there. The flags are somewhat like stickers in nature, are rectangular in shape, and are between a fingernail and a hand in size. There were somewhere between 10 and 37 flags.

Just to confirm: The flags were the little plastic tabs that are colorful and slightly sticky on one end? (Similar to a Post-it note.)

Was the book fiction? or non-fiction?

Was the book handed to you? Or were you observing it in another person's possession?

You said that the flags didn't indicate that you had to do anything - did it mean that someone else was going to have to do something? Do we need to discover another relevant person?

Yeah, Biograd basically has it.

*****SPOILER******

I saw a girl reading Anna Karenina on the train. For a split second, I was excited to see someone reading such a challenging book, but then I saw the flags, and realized she was probably only reading it -- and only what she had to -- for a grade. That's why I was disappointed.

Thanks for playing, and sorry for the repeated delays.
