If you earned the Deputy badge with the old flag weight rules (>= 500 flag weight) then the badge wasn't removed when the rules were changed to just count the number of helpful flags.

I was awarded this in July last year, after being a member for 7 months, and I'm pretty sure I hadn't raised 500 flags by that time. –  Niklas Mar 1 '12 at 9:57

@Niklas - under the old rules you would have only had to have raised 40 helpful flags (1 flag = 10 points, you started at 100, so 100 + 40 * 10 = 500) –  ChrisF Mar 1 '12 at 10:02
    
Ah ok! That explains it =) –  Niklas Mar 1 '12 at 10:05
