The first one was not filmed. This was the emotionally important one. Ships in the harbor honked their horns and there was jubilation all over the island. They did this second raising for the cameras. 1/3 of all Marines who died in WWII died on Iwo Jima.

I just visited the Marine Museum at Quantico a month ago. They have the flag shown in this clip at the museum.
