Money Symbol flag from the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Club Heart Band Movie 1978

  In the 1978 the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Club Heart Band film was released starring The Bee Gees. It was made in the cosmic wake created by Star Wars mashing up with the spirit of the 1970s with the Beatles.  It was funky a film to say the least.

Several flags appear in the movie but the most original appears during Aerosmith's rendition of Come Together.  The flag is a dollar sign in circle on a background of money green.

The money flag represents greed on a harmful selfish level.  The choice of greed versus love and joy is a theme debated in the film.

There is a fine line between joyful abundance and self serving greed.  Certainly it is possible to become rich without being mean, cruel, wicked, heartless or paying people a sub-human minimum wage.
