The missing flag is:

Flag of Ghana

The flag of Ghana.

Why? Because these flags and the letters beside them represent:

the nationalities and initials of people who have been the UN Secretary-General:

Trygve Lie (Norway)
Dag Hammarskjöld (Sweden)
U Thant (Myanmar)
Kurt Waldheim (Austria)
Javier Pérez de Cuéllar (Peru)
Boutros Boutros-Ghali (Egypt)
Kofi Annan (Ghana)
Ban Ki-moon (South Korea)
António Guterres (Portugal)

The missing person is the Ghanaian UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan.

Note the hint in the title too:

'Leading' suggests leadership (and 'in order' helps us note that there is a sequence involved).
