Two views of a bridge

Looking towards the Bridge of the United Nations South from the New York State Pavilion. Restored print from 1965.

It's fun to see some of the sort of oddball things people captured in their photos. This view is looking out from the General Motors line towards the Bridge of the United Nations - South. I wish those flags were still there, so colorful. Restored from a scanned print, 1965.

Funny thing about those flags; they are generic.  They don't represent any nation, or state or province.  They are merely decorative.  I wonder why the Fair didn't fly more flags representing participating nations and US states.  The last flag on the right resembles the official NYWF flag but I cannot determine what is depicted in the center circle.  It's not the Unisphere.

I could imagine Moses, following his rebuff by the Expo organization, ordering that all national flags be removed.

Thank you, Wayne.  I stand corrected.  I feel like a dope because my flag has a white Unisphere.  
Thanks for the additional photos.
