Does it show you still have flags left? If you equip the flags it should only expend the flags you own until you run out.

REPLACING them in-game when you have none left in stock will cost gold. If you have a whole bunch of them, you don't pay until you run out. It's the same as for premium consumables (except you can't buy these flags with silver)

Equipping flags shouldn't cost money unless you had zero of them before you attempted to equip them.

Previously you wouldn't be able to get those flags unless you bought them from the premium store.

You must have auto resupply enabled and you rand out of them.

What I don't like is that you have to turn off the auto-mount feature when you have the last one mounted or you get charged the dubs after the battle. 

And when you turn off auto-mount you have to remember to load up all the flags you do have multiples of AGAIN. 

This change was not implemented well at all. I would to see a flag that runs out stay unmounted/unpurchased until you physically mount it again for the dubs. At that point it should auto-mount for dubs.

This is contrary to "free to play" when a free action automatically becomes a pay action without player affirmation.

The Economic Signal Flags only cost you Doubloons when you resupply them and you ran out of your stock.

 

OP, you probably had yours on Auto-Resupply and you ran out of your stockpile, hence the Doubloons cost.  You got this enabled as in the lower left, it's going to do so.

"Supply Side (4/25) With Update 0 .7.4, automatic resupply of consumables has been temporarily disabled to ensure stability with the new signal flags for doubloons change.  If you logged in after 8:30 AM PT/11:30 AM ET, this issue should not impact you.  We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and wish you epic battles!"

Don't you have the "use in-game currency if needed to resupply" checkbox, like with consumables?

I think the whole "Gold on Enable Resupply" thing is kind of sketchy. Just revert it. If we can pay for them with gold, just make it a drop down option we can check off.
