Dieter Meier, heir turned conceptual artist, joined Boris Blank to form the electronic synth group Yello in the late '70s, but it wasn't until the late '80s that they had their biggest success with the international hit "The Race", which was used in advertisements and (sports) programs all over the world.

Combining samples and beats with Meier's deep and distinctive voice, Yello became experts in combining the suave with the eclectic. 1989's Flag contains the hit "The Race" next to a number of experiments on Afro-Cuban rhythms, such as on "Tied Up".

This first vinyl re-release since 1989 comes with an insert.
