Rocket League success can be credited to two things: the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) and the game's diverse and quality content creators.
And I mean no disrespect to Psyonix' marketing team, but Rocket League has some of gaming's most creative content creators, releasing top quality content daily. The ability for this to drive more and more players to the game, over five years after its initial release, is there for all to see.

Now Psyonix wants to give back announcing the return of Community Flags now with more content creators gracing our antennas.

Below you will find the full list of YouTubers, streamers and casters that made the cut:
- Alejandra “Athena”
- Brett ”FluuMP” McGranahan
- John “JohnnyBoi_i” MacDonald
- Joni "JZR" Humaloja
- Treyven "Lethamyr" Robitaille
- Jarmo "Linkuru" Niinemäe
- Wyatt “Musty”
- Josh “PhantomACE”
- Jared “SunlessKhan” Zook
Psyonix works with the game's content creators, a recent collaboration with SunlessKhan saw him create a Rocket League 101 to help the influx of players joining the game after it went free-to-play.
It’s worth noting, JohnSandman, the first-ever Rocket League YouTuber to hit the 1 million subscriber mark, is making a comeback in this list as he had his flag added back in 2017, and removed with the Free To Play update.
The Rocket League Item Shop also allows players to support the game's content creators with Creator Codes which were introduced when the game went free-to-play.

After the announcement, professional players Pierre "Turbopolsa" Silfver and Mariano "SquishyMuffinz" Arruda took to Twitter to express their thoughts:

i have 4 flags in @RocketLeague 🥰— Envy Turbopolsa (@Turbopolsa) November 19, 2020
SquishyMuffinz spoke about being snubbed from the project despite being a pioneer in Rocket League content and having more than a million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
Turbopolsa, on the other hand, bragged about already having “4 flags” in the game, referring to the banners hanging around Champions Field with his name on them. The four-time, four-time, four-time, four-time does not miss.
