    Hi!
    Las banderas de Estados Unidos, de Mexico y de El Salvador. -> it seems that each country has several flags (The flags of U.S.A., those of Mexico and those of El Salvador).
    Las banderas de Estados Unidos, Mexico y El Salvador. -> it is understood that there are three flags, one from each country.
    Bye.

    Hi,

    You can use "de" if you want to. There is a very slight difference and it doesn't sound strange with "de".

    Hi again!
    Well, if you prefer to repeat "de", then using singular will help to be clear:
    La bandera de Estados Unidos, [la] de México y [la] de El Salvador.
    Bye.
