I've been taping the International placard off for the red and blue flag areas, but the big white field with the International area in it will certainly be more difficult.
The flags and letters on your Airstream, all had small posts on the backside.
Then, holes were drilled to match the location of those posts.
The flags,letters were then inserted into the holes, and a speed nut was slid over those posts to hold those parts in place.
Using a putty knife will remove them with ease.
Reinstall them using pop rivets, and of course some sealer.
