The American flags taken from the Brooklyn Bridge last month are back on U.S. soil.

The flags on top of the bridge were mysteriously replaced with bleached flags back on July 22.

A pair of artists from Germany took responsibility for the stunt, calling it a tribute to the bridge's architect, John Roebling.

A spokesman for the New York City Police Department says the American flags are once again in the U.S. soil but could not confirm their actual location.
