So this is the next thing to come out of this plant after what seems very much like a flag leaf to me.

And you can see what I think is a pre-flag leaf in the third pic, below and to the left of the flag leaf.

Now I don't know really what to expect from this plant, however based on my somewhat limited research, I assumed the next thing to emerge would have been the flower. However, it looks to me like it is another leaf? A post flag leaf??

Is this normal? And, just curiously, what should I expect to emerge from it next?

I agree .... this is not normal. The leaf after the flag (???) looks to be a normal leaf; Although the mid rib looks to be extra big. Keep posting pics to the plant. .... I was looking at enlargement of the pics to figure out if the big leaf was in fact after the flag. .... I think something happened to the plant and caused the supposed flag to be a deformed normal leaf. I've never seen this before.
