Go to that link for a detailed, scientific answer as to why we cannot see it. The simple answer is we are way too far away !...........I'm sorry, but I am an Astronomy major and the statement that we could not even see it with the hubble telescope is completely untrue. However, the answer is NO, you cannot see it from Earth, even with a powerfull telescope.

Can you see the flag on the moon?

No. The flag is far too smal for even the largest telescopes to see. Even the Apollo landers are too small.
