@Nancy OSheaI think you may be mistaken about the flags.  According to Adobe's known image restrictions page (https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/known-image-restrictions.html), it states:

Certainly how the flag is depicted matters.  I doubt it would be an issue in the image provided here.

 

@nebiyus52581152I would agree with @George_F regarding the missing blacks and lack of contrast.  The other issue are the sun spots/flares which are often grounds for refusals.

The histogram should have info from edge to edge, black to white.

Good luck with future submissions 🙂

4 U.S. Code § 8

(i) The American flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever.

Quality issues aside, whatever you submit to Stock is for use in commercial projects.  Therefore the flag disqualifies it.  Sorry.
