Flags in If God Were One of Us - 1995 Video by Joan Osborne


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 writes 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.
