These are not pennants or flags made of fabric, but rather miniatures made of metal that can be attached by a pin. They show the respective club burgees, or pennants, which can be attached to the boats or yachts. They are, so to speak, miniature versions of the actual pennants or flags of the respective yacht or water sports club. As an addition, this time I scanned the back showing the needle. Can any of these clubs be identified?

Generally, we call these "stick pins" in English. They are often used on ties, suit lapels, etc.
The first three you sent to Klaus-Michael Schneider were posted as UFE21-63 - "German Yacht Club Stick Pins."

I wondered if you might recognise this type of ship and the blue and red flag? Painting seen in Denpasar, Bali. At a guess, this is mid/late c19th and associated with the NEI.
E. Edwards McKinnon, 24 November 2021
I am afraid I do not recognise the flag, nor the blue and yellow flags
also seen there.

"After the day of fasting comes the night of feasting. For Iranians, the familiar rhythm of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan brought an entirely different sort of celebration on the night of July 14th." (source).
The caption reads: "Iranian national flag with 'I.R. Iran' (Islamic Republic of Iran) wording, in Tehran, 14 July 2015".

This is an odd one - not only is the text in English, but the Farsi text bordering the fields is missing. Note that image dates from 2015.

I am wondering if you can identify this one? Probably pre-1970.
John Crebbin, 17 December 2021
One would think OPCC would be good clue, but I don't see anything that might use a fleur-de-lys with those letters. Do you have any provenance information? What part of the world is it in or did it come from?

A scout group from Canada could well have a flag that does not involve a national emblem.

"Country Club" would be another avenue of exploration. More information on the article itself could help. It looks like an inlay on a wooden item of some kind; an award or a trophy, for example?
Russ & Janet Adams, 18 December 2021
My father was Captain F.E. Crebbin and the Marine Superintendent of Lamport & Holt of Liverpool. The Flag is on a wooden tray and was, no doubt, given to him as a corporate gift. My son living in Philadelphia now has it.

The caption for this flag reads: "c9 Nov. 2021; Unidentified green-field flag with logo containing small Iraq flag in middle, and perhaps the Muslim "Shahada" (profession of faith) in white area at bottom of flag. As this flag is carried alongside a poster of the Shiite-Muslim leader Muqtada al-Sadr, it appears to be affiliated with the Iraqi PMF (Popular Mobilization Forces)" (source).

The text for this photo was "The below two photos, on the right, reveal four unidentified flags: three white & 1 green. They may be related to the Shiite-Muslim 'Al-Nujaba Movement' militia in Iraq. The yellow flag appears to be that of the 'Hizbollah Brigades'. All three white flags show Hizbollah/Hisbollah-related imagery. The second-from-the-right white-flag also appears as a desktop flag in the photo. In somewhat of a distraction, at the top right, appears the 'blue flame' logo of MEMRI - which conceals part of the flags [source info: Iraqi Shi'ite militia leader Sheikh Akram Al-Kaabi, the Secretary General of the Al-Nujaba Movement, said in a December 10, 2021 address to Iraqi militia leaders that aired on Al-Nujaba TV (Iraq)..."
The second photo had this text: "the below photo is similar to the above photo, however, on the right the fright-most white flag does not show the MEMRI 'blue flame' logo, unlike the top photo. Also, an unidentified green flag appears at the far right."
The source of these was on-line "The MEMRI Daily" (The Middle East Media Research Institute"), 14 Dec 2021. (source)

The image attached was one of several in the link that shows the flags with slightly different perspectives. The best of the green flag (#75d) is this one.
