US Flag in Forrest Gump

On this Thanksgiving Day there are so many things to be thankful for.  In the movie Forrest Gump 1994, the story of one man, Forrest Gump, reflects back the story of America in tale is one to consider.

Several flags appear in dramatic fashion.  Forrest Gump's best friend Bubba looses his life in Vietnam, but Forrest decides to live out Bubba's dream fishing for shrimp.
Here the US flag is on the flying on the shrimp fishing boat Jenny.  Note that Forrest Gump was filmed at the apex of natural colour filming.  Currently as of 2014 movie directors, since the Matrix in 1999, opt to film in a genre of limited colours. Maybe soon they will go back to black and white since natural color movies are out of fashion  
During the anti-war rally in DC, a man with an American Flag shirt stands in awe as Forrest gives a speech about Vietnam.
Here the US flag is in the background next to several other flags, including the US Army flag.
