Does anyone knows with which plugin this 3d flag is created in AE?

You could get something that looks like that with a 16-bit displacement map that gradates from mid-gray to smoothed animated fractal noise.

Zaxwerks 3d flag - specialized plugin for flags.

http://zaxwerks.com/3dflag

There is also the option of using FreeForm Pro with some expressions from Dan Ebberts to create a flag (free project file on this page):

I think its the Zaxwerks 3D Flag, I have the plugin but the flag is extremly twisting, there must me some option tweaks to get that only edge bending.

You have to play with the plugin controls to get the right look. If I remember well there are some presets that come with the plugin and a bunch of tutorials you can watch to see how the plugin works.

Ok, so after long time trying to get this look, I'm absolutely nowhere. I tried many combinations with Zaxwerks but this look simply cannot be achieved. Can you suggest some other tricks and plugins, I'm willing to buy them no mather how much they cost.

With the fractal noise / displacement map method. Same noise map used for shading:
