In the film the mini flag of the USA, Spain, Italy (Mexico?), and Canada appear in one of the transition sequences. A white hotel flag with corporate logo is also visible, but it impossible to discern from the video.
Mr. Rodger's is an American classic from Pennsylvania. His calm, low key delivery of infotainment made its deepest impact on Generations X, Y, and Z. Usually media is over the top and off the wall to gain the 'consumers' attention, with witty humour and wacky special effects, like jingling keys.
However, Rodger's put the jingling keys away and spoke directly, unafraid of that oh so precious silent space. Most people growing up in American learn to hate the quiet, and find it necessary to fill the void with talk or jokes.
In a way, many have this backwards as the quiet is good. Most people don't have any idea the importance of quiet in the mind. And when you share the quiet with another person or stranger, it is good. If you are uncomfortable with the 'awkward silence' — that is your ego, that judgemental inner voice that dislikes the silence. In fact, the ego hates silence and will often negatively blame and judge the other person or yourself for that 'painful' silence. 'Awkward Silences' are sign that you ego is out of control, and you need to learn to control better manage its constant noise and often negative judgements.
The style of curtains was stark contrast to Mr. Roger's style. They were often loud, brash, and zany patterns that were of young boy's room, of that 1950s Americana. One flag was similar to the American flag but had three stripes of green, blue, and white.
There was also a green pennant with a blue vertical pattern near the hoist with writing on the flag. Note before anger management became real therapy, Mr. Rogers tackled this problem head on.

Of vexillological note, when the protagonist of the story, Sketch Turner, gets his superhero power up, a unique logo appears on his chest: it is a red semi-circle with an ×, that appears on a white shirt. The livery of our superhero is white,
black, and red. He has black tights with boots, a white shirt, and a red cape. Turner also dons sunglasses and is able to blast all baddies on the screen, with a comic zap.
When Turner is in normal mode, he is a Kung Fu master of the 1990s sort. The pants and haircut are of the Niffertastic Nineties™.
The bad guy logo also appears on the bombs in some of the abandoned ships. It is red painted face outline of a man with hat, sunglasses, and long mustache.
Comix Zone is one of the few original masterpieces with original content, rather than being an established pop-icon or a spinoff of some other established property, like the Amazing Man Spider, Mr. Bat Ma'am, or the X-Them.

Sonic the Hedgehog was family friendly, nostalgic wonder spark. Most movies based on video games flop. Typically the fans and Hollywood directors are out of sync. But finally in 2020, the directors got it right.
Of vexillological note is the headband that Sonic wears in the movie. The logo design is modified black and white pattern based upon the intro screen from his first game, back in 1991.
Sonic the Hedgehog is of the original Platformer—basically a jump and run to side action game. These type of games are continually remade each generation. The basic plan of the game is to run to a goal, via an obstacle course, using the simple rules of gravity, power ups, and of course timing the right time jump at the right moment.
To the left, notice the crossed checker flag lamp that Sonic gets in his new bedroom above his new besties. Sonic has a big smile, as he gets comfy in his new bedroom, that is above ground.

In 2020 Sonic the Hedgehog movie, an original and imaginative flag for the US Pentagon appears during the meeting of generals. The design of the flag does not match to the official seal in our universe, but in this alternate sector of the Multiverse it is the official flag.
