Various articles and photos purport to show flags of the space stations, both
ISS and MIR. I also found a photo of ISS (International Space Station)
flag. I haven't found that is reported before: http://images.usatoday.com/tech/_photos/2006/06/19/nasa-large.jpg. It shows a silhouette of the station on the flag that appears to match that in this rather well-known (or at least widely distributed) image: http://vector1media.com/spatialsustain/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/international-space-station.jpg (which is not a photo but was rather a preview CG rendering of what the station would look like when completed.)
I'm not sure I would call this the flag of the ISS or the ISS program; with the NASA and Space Flight Awareness logos, it would appear to represent only the US element of the multinational partnership.

The upcoming space station crew displays a white flag, with the patch of
their Soyuz transport flight, Soyuz TMA-08M.
