US flag and US Calvary Flag - The Yellow Submarine 1968
The flag of the United States of America appears almost by accident in the 1968 counter culture classic - The Yellow Submarine. The US flag appears in the head of one of the heads in the headland. The British Flag also makes an appearance as well.
The film is basically a guide to the ego in altered states of consciousness. Here Ringo is saved by the US 7th Calvary after 'hitting' the panic button during his amazing voyage into fantasia. The US Calvary is carrying a guidon that is divided horizontally down the middle with US written in yellow on red and the number seven in red on the white half.
