Apocalypto Mayan Temple Flags - 2006

Notice Long Flags with Mayan writing

In 2006 Mel Gibson's Apocalypto enchanted audiences across the world. The film centers on a semi-fictional Mayan culture of Central America at the dawn of Spanish Exploration of the New World.

Before the arrival of Spain human sarafice was a common spectacle deeply engrained in few of the Central American cultures. Here warriors of the city attacked the 'jungle' people to be used as slaves and religious offerings to the Gods.

A Long flag decorated with a warrior?

Several Long Flags all of similar styles

the flag in the upper right shows Mayan writing

  1. That's not a warrior on that flag. It's a Mayan god, but I can't tell which one.
