it doesnt unlock anything. its just an achievement. some people still find it fun to collect flags. here are some vids that can help.

stabguy is working on kingdom flags and templars.

Status update: Kingdom flag & Templar videos are 63% complete. They will be released as a five video set, probably some time in mid March. Total run time will be approximately 48 minutes. It's a big project.

I was following up on Ian's comment about flag/Templar videos. Take a look at this playlist on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=698768905B3D3297

We're doing unedited speed collection videos of all flags and Templars in Assassin's Creed. It really helps others to see the flags in the context of actual gameplay and to follow an efficient route from flag to flag. The set is complete except for the Kingdom, which I am contributing.

As for your question:
in the animus after the 7th block theres one with the lists of the different achievements... those aren't anything?

On Xbox 360, you get seven achievements for collecting flags and one (Personal Vendetta) for killing all 60 Templars. Those achievements probably fill in cells of a DNA strand under "Additional Memories". I wouldn't know for sure. They certainly don't "unlock" additional content or anything.

The reasons people collect flags are for Xbox gamerpoints and for the sense of accomplishment that comes from completing the game 100%.

I did it for exploration and because I was immersed into it. Also because I was competing getting all the achievements with a friend.

So that additional memories was their just to get me excited and will just be like GOOD JOB! Dammit! I'm a completest so I'll do it any ways... Once my HD comes in. So many flags and Templar and such though I don't know if I wanna find it all myself or just grab a guide and look or better yet use your videos so I can see and not try to read.... Yay for run on sentences. Thanks for clearing that up guys.

they should have included an in-game map for flags that would be obtained through an elaborate pickpocket mission
