US Flag in Swamp Thing 1982
The US Flag appears in the cult classic movie Swamp Thing 1982. When the helicopter lands in the swamp the pilot just happens to be wearing a US flag sticker on his helmet.
Swamp Thing is a cult classic for several reasons. It is the last of the great Man-in-Rubber-Suit B-movies. More than just a monster fighting the people, this monster is ugly and also beautiful. He or it, is the anti-hero who lives off an echo of love, to protect the ones who had shown kindness. A hero that repays kindness with strength, a very strange exchange these days.
So never forget that your body too is an amazing, poweful, beautiful, and mysterious swampy environment of cells and materials that can bring healing into this world. Here Swamp Thing is using swamp powers to heal an injured boy.
