How many flags giants had?

I don"t entirely get what you mean by Giants. The San Francisco Giants, originally the New York (baseball) Giants won a number of Pennants . League championships are often called Pennants, as I am writing this the Pennant races are going on between the Yankees and Tigers for the American League Flag. As a pennant is a type of flag, they are also called Flags. You would have to look it up. Pennant refers to the League championship- not the World Series. Look under Baseball. The term Flag in the sense you apply it to Baseball pennant winners, is not done in Football.
