Answer: It's not the Honduran flag, or the ISIS flag, or the North Korean flag, which was speculated by a few people. It's a Blue Star Families pin, worn to honor his son, who is serving in the military overseas. The pin itself is a blue star on a white field. Kaine has worn the pin on multiple occasions throughout the campaign.
