Fun Flag for Hassium - Element 108

A new kind of matter was created in 1984 within West Germany: Hassium.  This fun flag is based upon the name of the element of the German state where it was created.  This atom has 108 protons in its nucleus.  Less than 50 atoms of this element have been made so far.  Amazingly we have the technology to detect such small quantities!
