Interesting game - Is a flag a truce?

I am of the opinion green should be protected here, even though I do think he played a subpar game. I think not protecting him would be basically stabbing, a couple players didn't seem to think so though.

Blue earlier in the game has the opportunity to seriously damage brown and doesn't, while green overextends and lets brown take his back territories. While blue and I are fighting, none of his flags are able to assist him until it's too late and he flags to red. I think he could have played on further without flagging from that point, but that's another discussion.

The subpar way green played essentially forces the hand of all his flags to go down with the ship, so I can understand why some might not want to protect him. But on the other hand, watching him die as we do nothingâ?? but reap the rewards of having flagged him seems stabby to me.

Is a flag a truce? What would you have done?
