Moon Landing

It is said  that there is no atmosphere in moon therefore no air but when Neil Armstrong landed on moon first and hosted the us flag it flapped. how can this happen??

(See the photograph below)
The photograph below shows the photographs of flag taken from two different angles at slightly different times. Watch the curls and curves on flag. They have not changed
Lunar landing flag

Vishnu Comments: “hosting could have sent a disturbance up the pole and thru the flag. Does it flap? we cant say that from a fotto. in moons surface, if we keep the flag with curls, the curls stays there.  is there a vdo of flapping? After all its not worth discussing a lot over this”
