Derpy’s Flag is a Photoshop meme of fan-favorite background pony Derpy Hooves from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, waving the Ponyville flag in S4E10 Rainbow Falls. The scene marked Derpy's comeback after being absent due to the Derpygeddon controversy.
A few days before the episode aired, show writer Meghan McCarthy posted tweets on her Twitter hinting at the return of Derpy Hooves.
