Obviously NYC is a huge melting pot full of different cultures from all over the world.

I've always been curious. What do the International Flags displayed at the Plaza and Waldorf Astoria hotels suppose to stand for? From time to time when I'm in Manhattan they are always different each time I'm there. Sometimes the Israeli, Canadian, and British Flags are flown. Other times the Canadian, Italian, and British flags are flown. And at times many other nations are flown at the two hotels.

Just curious why they change from time to time and what they are for?

Many hotels,not just the Waldorf and the Plaza and not just in New York, fly the flags of the countries that their guests at the time are from. That is why the flags change from day to day.

Often if a visiting head of state is in town, his/her flag will be displayed.
