Following his break-up with Amy, in The Separation Oscillation (Season 9, Episode 2) Sheldon recorded a special episode of Fun with Flags about countries which split up. Sheldon talked about the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and Romania and Moldova in the episode.
To celebrate spending Valentine's Day as a couple again, Sheldon and Amy hosted a special live episode of Fun with Flags in The Valentino Submergence (Season 9, Episode 15). Much to Sheldon's chagrin, however, their vexillological discussion goes off topic when a distraught Raj calls in for relationship advice. Barry Kripke's unwanted calls aiming to find a female companion only add to Sheldon's woes.
After moving across the hall to Apartment 4B, Sheldon and Amy hosted their first "on location" episode of Fun with Flags in The Veracity Elasticity (Season 10, Episode 7). Howard and Raj's band, Footprints on the Moon, were the "house band" and provided the Fun with Flags theme tune. The subject of the episode was regions that had come together.
A live behind-the-scenes special titled Fun with Flags: Behind the Flags - A Retrospective (Season 10, Episode 21). Howard and Raj's Footprints on the Moon were the houseband again. In the episode, Sheldon interviewed his friends about their (limited) recollections of the birth of Fun with Flags.
