This screen shot was taken from Let's Riff Super Mario Odyssey w/AVGN 2017 - Youtube. This video is done in the style of the Mystery Science Theater 3000, but with more salty language - Rated R.

Double Dare the Nickelodeon game show for kids was an 1980s mega-bomb of super, silly, slimy fun! It had that ubiquitous 1980s rock, electro-guitar riff. After the initial playoff round of two teams of questions and dares, the winning team had an opportunity to run an obstacle course of eight challenges. With each obstacle was an bright orange flag that they had to grab, in order to claim the prize.
The host of Nickelodeon's Double Dare was Marc Summers, a friendly all American brand from Indiana. In this photo Summers is describing the obstacle course and pointing out where some of the flag are, as kids do, they often forget to grab the flag and listen to directions!
Kids had 60 seconds to get all eight flags. It happened every so often. You can blame Double Dare for all the wacky adult physical challenge games that would later absorb the TV airwaves of the early and mid Mighty-20 ohs.

In 2011 the family documentary movie Happy was released. It promoted that inner happiness is important, more so than external happiness. Its been said many times over and over, but many people obsess over external pursuit of happiness. There is a baseline need for external happiness, but internal happiness is paramount.
Benicia Middle School, talks about how poorly people treat other, and is able to get a few bullied kids to bear their soul. Showing that their bravery to speak candidly in front of their peers is important, and takes real courage.

A silver-blue vexilloid like veil appears in the opening sequence. Also as Tyler walks though the empty corridor of the soul, red vexilloids can be seen flowing in the doorways. The video can be variously interpreted, but the core theme of sadness bound to love, becomes apparent at love's temporal loss. But love's loss, can open the door to a higher calling.
The loss of love on the deepest levels will cause the soul to stop, ponder, and search the abyss. It is a sober moment of reflection that transforms lives. When love's loss hits a large group, a candle light vigil is the natural echo of its wake.
The creators of the video effectively demonstrate the empty corridors of the heart upon love's transmutation to spirit.
A heart wrenching song that has a heart wrenching, mysterious video - that is part movie, part fantasy, part parable. It effectively captures the shattered mind and heart, that lay upon the path of the eclipsed heart.

A red flag is lifted in video for R.E.M.'s Losing My Religion - 1991. R.E.M. addresses the hard issues of faith with the video Losing My Religion. Released in 1991, it was created as the Soviet Union and International Communism faded into the history books.
Nonetheless this song honors the siege of the spirit by the world, circumstance, and pain. As the modern mind continues to struggle with matters of spirit and the many judgmental self-righteous voices, many souls can have their faith falter or seemingly lose it all together.
In many cases those who have lost their wings or path, often take comfort in the partially rational rivers of socialism and the great ocean of atheism, which like all ocean's of faith is subject to the storms of the self-righteous who bask in its friendly currents.
Have a blessed Somber Friday... to Nature can the soul retreat.

The US flag appears in the video for the song If God Were One of US- 1995 by Joan Osborne. The flag appears only momentarily in a montage. The video takes on the lyrics literally. Joan sings a edgy yet soulful song in a simple open heart 1990s grunge beat, a song that asks a thought provoking question that penetrates to soul of the public. In the video, all kinds of people are put in a head cut out of the famous painting of God by Leonardo da Vinci from the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City, Rome, as if to be God, bringing literal light to the intangible God-Head imparted on the human soul, as spoken about in many religions new and ancient.
The flag of Puerto Rico also appears in the song. A man on an odd cycle has flags of Puerto Rico under the US flag.

As soon as the boy walks through the figurative door, we see a flash of the popular triangle that is associated in mystical realms.

The Fun Maritime Flag for 25% is yellow, red, blue, and white. It takes flag elements from the number 2, number 0 and number 5.
The flag for 0.50 uses the colours yellow, red, and blue. The whole number zero flag is conserved as a vertical tri-bar of yellow, red, yellow. In the center is the pattern flag for the number 5, which is yellow and blue. There is no additional zero flag since it is not needed.
The Fun Maritime Flag for 0.75 uses the colours yellow, red, and blue. The whole number flag for zero is conserved, while the number seven flag is the next point down, and finally in the center is the pattern for the number five, which is yellow and blue.

The 100% Maritime Flag is composed of the colours white, yellow, and red. The dominant maritime flag is the number one, which is the white field with a red disc. Within the red disc are two number zeros, one within the other. By cosmic coincidence this flag makes out a Roman numeral "I". Remember when dealing with flags of percentage/decimals, the next number down a decimal place is always within the higher ordered flag.
Kinda' also looks like a Batman Logo?

|Square Root of 2 Maritime Flag: 1.41421|
One point, four, one, four, two, one is the square root of two. By the good fates, it neatly packs itself into a Maritime Flag. Since the number one is coded to a red disc and four is a white cross on a red field, it smoothly makes a good flag up to the 100,000th thousands place which is also a one, which is why there is a red dot in the center. Just see the pic below to understand how the Maritime Square Root of 2 flag works.
Basically each number down a decimal place must fit within the upper number, so as to make this pattern.

Nothing so cute at first, but at later levels cute Zaxxon dragons appeared, but few had enough skill or quarters to reach that level.
Of vexillological note are the red pennant markers that denoted ones level.
Maybe a reboot of Return of the Zaxxon Dragons - 2022 is overdue?

Sausage Party uses the quantum multiple realities to convey its quirky dimension, whereby food products are alive, yet humans are unaware. Apparently this movie takes place in a reality that is like our USA, yet is based upon different laws of physics, that are so close yet so different.
If you like low brow humour and edgy innuendo, then this movie is for you!

This is the flag for the Way-Mid Pole. The colours of the flag are white, green and two shades of blue. The Way-Mid Pole is in the Pacific Ocean directly 90 Degrees east of the East Pole and 90 west of the West Pole.
It is called the Way-Mid Pole because it is not at Midway. Furthermore from its point of orientation, it is backwards from the East Pole and West Pole. The West Pole is eastward, while the East Pole is westward. Bottom line is, that it is the opposite pole of the Center Pole in Gabon, Central Africa.
The Center Pole is a natural consequence of having a North, South, East, and West Pole. Smack dab in the center in between the West Pole and East Pole, it is located in Gabon. It sits right on the Equator, 90 Degrees eastward from the West Pole.
