When does the kerbonaut get the flag?

Hi, currently there is a statement that the kerbonaut get the flag as soon as he leaves the craft for an EVA. Now I can't test it right now, but as far as I know each kerbonaut has only one flag. Once planted he can't plant another flag. Although I don't know if this changed in 0.21 (didn't planted many flags) with the astronaut complex. Because with the astronaut complex it is more obvious that one Kerbal starts multiple times, and my guess would be that they get the flag on start. — xZise [talk] 05:22, 3 October 2013 (CDT)

I tried this in the game the other day and it does indeed work like that. If you plant the flag, send the kerbal back into the ship, and then EVA again, he's carrying a new flag, and you can repeat this to plant lots of flags with a single kerbal/mission. I don't know what version introduced this behavior, though. --Haveblue (talk) 09:46, 3 October 2013 (CDT)
You are correct, strange. I tested it and after every EVA the kerbal had a new flag. This wasn't always the case, was it? — xZise [talk] 07:35, 5 October 2013 (CDT)
