I was also unfamiliar with the term:

 From Wikipedia:
*False flag* operations are covert operations conducted by governments, 
corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if 
they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from 
the military concept of flying false colors </wiki/False_colors>; that 
is, flying the flag of another country other than your own. This was 
considered acceptable provided one lowered the false flag and raised the 
national flag before engaging in battle. Auxiliary cruisers 
</wiki/Auxiliary_cruiser> operated in such a fashion in both World Wars. 
In the most notable example, the German Kormoran 
</wiki/German_auxiliary_cruiser_Kormoran> raider surprised and sank the 
Australian light cruiser HMAS Sydney </wiki/HMAS_Sydney> in 1941 
</wiki/1941>, causing the greatest loss of life on an Australian ship ever.
