The Especial Vexillum, more commonly known as the flag, is a device used in one of Gimkit’s game modes, Capture the flag. (Or CTF for short.) But what is the flag? This, my fellow Gimkit enthusiasts, is what this guide hopes to explain.
Biology: What is a flag?
A flag is a lightweight device designed for Gim’s to carry to differnt places. It consists of a long metal gray pole which is about the size of an average sized Gim. On top of the pole is a flag that is customizable by the Creator, but starts as black. On the very bottom is a base. Flags are meant to be carried to one place to another, which is why it is so light it can move in the wind.

Customizing: What can be changed?
The flag can be changed in many ways. This can be found in the “Featured” and “Customization” menu. The Creator can change:
- The flag color
- The team the flag belongs to
- A safe zone
- How long it takes to return to base
- A pickup alert
These can be customized to the creators liking.
Family: The flags relationships + interactions.

Flags relationships can be separated into the two T’s: Teams and Types
The color can tell you the team. However, flags that are different Types CANNOT be in a team.
The top is NOT a team, while the bottom is.
There are 3 types: DF (device flag), AF (arena flag), and RF (racing flag), as seen in the first photo. Knowing the two T’s can help in keeping flags in maps, as different teams can be trained to fight.
