with the Hubble Space Telescope. It IS the most powerful telescope, right? Here’s the rub. The smallest possible thing Hubble can see on the moon is about 328 feet across or the length of a football field. While impressive feat of resolution, no Apollo spacecraft comes anywhere near that size.

Nope, even the Hubble telescope, which is orbiting around the Earth, and is closest to the Moon, cannot see objects so small as a flag.
Not yet, at least.
In future, for sure there will exist more powerful telescopes which will be able to focus that american flag.

First Of All It Would Depend On How Powerful The Most Powerful Telascope Is,Then You'd Have To Compare The Latitude And Longitue Of The Most Powerful Telascope To That Of The Group Of Flags On The Moon
