Nothing so cute at first, but at later levels cute Zaxxon dragons appeared, but few had enough skill or quarters to reach that level.
Of vexillological note are the red pennant markers that denoted ones level.
Maybe a reboot of Return of the Zaxxon Dragons - 2022 is overdue?

Sausage Party uses the quantum multiple realities to convey its quirky dimension, whereby food products are alive, yet humans are unaware. Apparently this movie takes place in a reality that is like our USA, yet is based upon different laws of physics, that are so close yet so different.
If you like low brow humour and edgy innuendo, then this movie is for you!

This is the flag for the Way-Mid Pole. The colours of the flag are white, green and two shades of blue. The Way-Mid Pole is in the Pacific Ocean directly 90 Degrees east of the East Pole and 90 west of the West Pole.
It is called the Way-Mid Pole because it is not at Midway. Furthermore from its point of orientation, it is backwards from the East Pole and West Pole. The West Pole is eastward, while the East Pole is westward. Bottom line is, that it is the opposite pole of the Center Pole in Gabon, Central Africa.
The Center Pole is a natural consequence of having a North, South, East, and West Pole. Smack dab in the center in between the West Pole and East Pole, it is located in Gabon. It sits right on the Equator, 90 Degrees eastward from the West Pole.

|March Equinox Flag|
The Equinox is when daytime and nighttime are in nearly perfect balance, which only happens two days out of the year.

Neptunium is the last element named after a place to get a Fun Flag on the this blog. Like the other Fun Flags named after places, the Fun Neptunium flag gets its design from the persons who were responsible for discovering these elements. It was a dynamic duo of men; one was from California and the other was from Washington State.
Consequently the California style flag is used, but fused with colours and elements from the flag for Washington State. Instead of a red bottom stripe, this flag has a bottom stripe the colour of Washington State, which is deep green. Washington's portrait has been modified. He is now on a seahorse carrying Neptune's Trident, near the bottom of the sea. The pose and likeness of this flag was taken from the designs of Washington on horseback from the supposed handkerchief of Washington ordered at John Hewson's calico print shop in 1776. Thus the flag of the Fun Neptunium flag fuses the overall design of the California State flag, Washington State flag and a historical artifact from 1776.
Neptunium's primary father from California was Edwin McMillan and the other dad was Philip H. Abelson from Tacoma, Washington. Note that Neptunium was discovered before the Great War with Ninjas and Nazis, as it was 'officially' discovered in 1940.

Vexilloids make an appearance in Dreamworks 2016 movie, Trolls. During the celebration of Trollstice by the Bergens, a Bib Banner can be seen declaring the Trollstice Holiday. The bib banner is green and yellow.
Along the route to the King's Castle, Troll skull banners can be seen. They have an imprint of the a troll-head forked on a skewer. Underneath in the compartment is a sinister knife, dexter fork, and sinister spoon in yellow. The standard crossed-saltire eyes on a troll head indicate it is ready to eat and no longer living.
Here is a close up of the Trollstice Scepter Finial. This design is also seen on the green banners on the path to the castle. The golden finial is pointing towards the Bergen Prince on the shoulder of the Bergen King. The Prince is about to get his first taste of happiness.
Bergens think that happiness can only be found by eating Trolls. They are obsessed with finding happiness outside of themselves, and have forgotten the path to inner happiness.
Trolls 2016 is a fantastic fast paced, peachy sweet and silly film, that the senses can devour. This is how the recently no so funny and bizarre Smurf movies should have went, but it was the Trolls that tapped that sweet silly spot of noodly nostalgia, balanced with a modern mix. This movie is a colourful classic for a whole happy fun loving family.
The Composite Semaphore Flag for Zulu has an indigo background, because Z is the 26th letter of the alphabet. Reason being, 6 is coded to indigo and the ones digit value of a letter sets the colour. As a reminder indigo (navy blue) is the sixth colour of the spectrum. Also the stars represent the right-starboard arm of the Semaphore Signaler.

The Composite Semaphore Flag for Uniform has a red background, because U is the 21st letter of the alphabet. The background colour is assigned to the ones digit value of the letter, which is one for Uniform. One is coded to red and white is its assigned contrast indicator. The stars indicate the right-starboard arm of the Semaphore Signaler.
The Composite Semaphore Flag for Romeo is black and white. It is black because T is the 18th number in the alphabet and the ones digit value of 8 is calibrated to to the colour black. White is included since it is the assigned contrast indicator. The stars show the right-starboard arm of the Semaphore Signaler.
The Composite Semaphore Flag for the Letter Q is purple since Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet and 7 is coded to violet. Yellow is included because yellow is the assigned contrast indicator for this colour.

The flag-nappers were able to capture Labeouf's flag, and replace it with a Pepe shirt and Make America Great Again hat.

This flag has a blue background because p is the 16th letter of the alphabet and the one's digit value for 6 is coded to indigo. The stars indicate the right starboard arm. White is used because it is the assigned contrast indicator.

The Composite Semaphore Flag is light blue since O is the 15th letter of the Alphabet. Reason being, 5 is coded to blue and the ones digit value sets the background colour. The red colour is the assigned contrast indicator and the stars indicate the right-starboard side of the Semaphore Signaler.
Happy Pi Day 2017! For this day we have two Pi Flags that read a 3.14; one is from the NATO number system the other is from the International Maritime number system.
By queer coincidence NATO and International Maritime flags use a red, crossed flag for the number: four. This fateful convergence of math with vexillology allows both Pi flags to be centered on a quartered pie. For NATO the central element of the number four is sliced at 45 degrees, but for International Maritime the pie is cut at 90 degrees.
|NATO Pi Flag - Combined 3.14 Flag|
Happy Pi Day! Once again this magical mathematical ratio of the circle has enchanted students and teachers for decades now. In honor of this logically illogical holiday we have the NATO Pi Flag. It is a combination of the official NATO flags for the #3, #1, and #4.
The larger component of the blue, red, blue horizontal tri-bar is the largest, as it represents the whole number three. Within this flag is a diamond, or rhombus that is the flag for number one, which is like the flag of Spain which is another horizontal tri-bar of red, yellow, red. Finally in the center is a white X on a red disc that represents the number four.
Like the official NATO flag, the Fun NATO Pi Flag has four compass points, a cicular central point, and navy blue.
Coincidentally the International Maritime Flag for Pi has a red disc with a central quatercrossed design. Both the Fun International Maritime Pi Flag and the Fun NATO Pi flag have 'four' sliced pizza's in the center, at different angles.
