The most popular flag for fallen officers is the Thin Blue Line flag. The stripe that underscores the canton is colored blue in honor of police officers.

2016 HO3, or rather Ho Ho Ho 2016, is a new moon. Not a new-black, nor a new-empty, nor a new-non reflective moon; but rather a newly discovered moon! A natural object placed in the heavens that is in orbit around Earth. We humans became aware of this moon during the year of the Monkey and month of Taurus. We could call it Monkey-Bull or just Monkey-Boo HO Cubed, or Mo-Bo Ho Ho Ho. Note that it is the letter 'oh' and not a zero. I know, so confusing that o,0,O can so easily get mixed up, especially when you write em'.
Note this moon will be in orbit around our humble abode for the next few centuries. Interestingly, there is no lower size limit on moons. A rock the size of your hand, could be a moon. Perhaps the moon of an asteroid? Yet there are size limits on planets. Thus you'll never hear astronomers speak of a Dwarf Moon, or failed moon. Sorry only planets and stars can fail. Moons are special because they come in any size. Unless... they get really big and become stars. Thus the biggest moons are Brown Dwarfs, which are failed stars.
Earth's neighborhood just got a little bigger this year. It used to be just the two of us: the Earth and the Moon. But Earth also has a Trojan Moon and now an outer Moonlet. How wonderful!

Americans come in a variety of ethnic backgrounds and many people like to identify their American heritage as being of another nationality first, popular examples being Irish-American, German-American, Asian-American, or African-American. This leaves the door open for just plain Un-Hyphenated Americans.
Un-Hyphenated Americans cherish their ethnic/religious backgrounds but primarily identify as Americans first, and yet they can enjoy their histoical heritage with pride and parades. Since many American-hyphenated groups have flags, it makes sense to give Un-Hyphenated Americans a flag as well.
The official American flag should suffice, but the American Ethnic Flag distinguishes paramount identity to being American rather than some other nationality or a hyphenated-American.
The canton is a reflection of the legendary Betsy Ross Flag, the field of red indicates this person is a wholly red blooded American first. Additionally the red field is an honor point to Native Americans, whose traditions, religions, and cultures are acknowledged and respected with this flag.
Persons of this American-first identity put America first in business, culture, politics, values, and of course rooting for the USA above all other nations even if they are at odds for the other team who just happens to be of their particular heritage. The white lower square under the blue canton brings balance to the traditional American colors, and represents the power of Providence or synchronicity.
This is not a flag for white-Americans, black-Americans, yellow-Americans, brown-Americans, peach-Americans, tan-Americans, or any other type of American...but for All Americans who identify as Americans first.

The Five Guys burger logo is visible on the cup that is being sipped. This man, Daym Drops, has truly found a Cheeseburger in Paradise in the year 2012. Although he was just making a simple Youtube simple critic video about a tasty burger joint, it turned into wonderful hit song on the Internet.
Who would have thought, you do a television interview and can become a musical pop star? Andy Warhol must be giggling in his grave? It's the 21st century and we are just getting a taste of the augmented reality that will make new stars, and drive new economies?

A tacky delight from 1987 are the vexilloids in Masters of the Universe - The Live Action Motion Picture. A colourful cheesy fun film for kids, that somehow got its own big budget movie. Although He-Man had a sword, Skeletor has a Ram's Staff of Power.
Large Skeletor Banners are hanging from Castle Greyskull on either side. They are coloured mostly purple and black.
Long yellow vexilloids are seen hanging from a doorway. The purpose is never explained but they have original movie made alien writing upon them.
Here is the best picture of a proper flag, that is barely visible in the background of some wreckage of some sort.
