Vertex animations are not supported with sequence animations. Only skeletal animations (movement of bones) is supported. This means that you cannot export a simulated cloth, etc, and expect it to work in Source.

The way you'd accomplish this is to skin the flag to some bones and animate the bones to have a similar effect.
