US State Seal Armorial Banner, A Unique Heraldic Flag

The armorial banner is based upon the pattern found on the shield, for a coat of arms.  In this case the shield on the official US coat of arms gives rise to this flag: the US State Seal Armorial Banner.  Interestingly there are no stars on the blue canton section.  Also the stripes are vertical and start with white, making them end with white.  Stars are missing because they appear in a cloud above the eagle. 

Although this is not an official flag, with the standard rules of heraldry applied to the shield found within the official US Coat of Arms, this is the consequential flag.

Adult Education Vexilloids 1984 - Daryl Hall & John Oates

Red Vexilloid from "Adult Education" 1984 - Hall & Oates
Daryl Hall and John Oates are known for their rock and roller videos that usually feature the boys with the band.  But in their Adult Education 1984 video, they took an artistic approach with the meaning of the lyrics.  The result was surreal  Road Warrior Union of Male and Female forms work of art.  In this video a woman with a red vexilloid is matched up with a man with a large black shield. 

Hall sings with his signature passion-mug poses with the Ultimate 80s Wing-Man, Oates, in the background.  In the background are several vexilloid like objects that have an ancient Babylonian kind of feel. The union of man with woman has enchanted all cultures, and public rituals and displays of their physical and spiritual togetherness have manifested in all cultures. 

Here our mysterious "female virgin initiate" is holding a vexilloid in her right hand that has a wild yet organic appearance.  It has a rake shape with wildly placed strips of red fabric tied to certain points.
