North Pole Elf Flag
Elf 2003

It may be Memorial Day Weekend - but since it's the 25th it is time for Christmas in May. Nine years ago Will Ferrell starred in one of the funniest Christmas movies to come out in a long time - Elf.

The original flag in this film is the red, white and green elf flag. It is similar in structure to an official standard but with a swallow tail. It has eight vertical stripes four white and four green. Near the hoist is a white snowflake on a red circle. The pole is also striped - white and green with a snowball for headpiece-finial.
