Wedding Band Vexilloid - from Clash of the Titans 1981

 The tied wedding band is a type of vexilloid and made an appearnce in Clash of the Titans 1981. Instead if a pole, the hand of a human acts as the vexilloid anchor.  It appears as a golden ribbon that is tied around the hands of Cassiopeia and Perseus. 

Close up of golden wedding knot.  The classical story of the hero and princess is retold, as it will be over and over.

Several ancient world vexilloids also appear in film.  They are classical vexilloids before the rise in popularity of the fabric based ones - usually called flags.
