An Appeal to Heaven, The Karate Kid

The Appeal to Heaven flag was one of the original flags from the American Revolution of 1776.  It features a pine tree on a white background and the words, "An Appeal To Heaven."  But with this flag the pine tree logo of The Karate Kid takes the place of the pine tree and a slightly different saying.  Thanks to this movie a grain of love between American, Japan, and Japanese-Americans was created.

This is the second place flag with the original Appeal to Heaven mantra.
Here is the original type from 1776.

An Appeal To Heaven, The Kite Eating Tree

Charlie Brown and the Kite Eating Tree, or rather the Charlie Brown ONLY Kite Eating Tree, makes a good fun flag with the Appeal to Heaven upon it.  In this version the Kite Eating Tree has not only ate Brown's Kite but also gave Charlie a little twist.

The original USA Pine Tree flag from 1776 had more positive connotations.

An Appeal To Heavenly Minecrafting

An Appeal to Pokemon, Heaven

The one odd tree Pokemon is a palm, so we have the Appeal to Pokemon Heaven flag.  If you didn't know the Appeal to Heaven flag was one of the original 1776 American Revolution flags that featured a pine tree in the middle.

 In this version, Pikachu has jumped in the flag.

An Appeal to Heaven, And to Recycle

Recycling is the way of the world, before man made materials were created elements like water, carbon, and nitrogen are recycled in the Earth.  The same carbon that made up the dinosaurs and Moses is now apart of you, a very small fraction but surely there are a few carbon atoms in you that belong to your best friend and even your worst enemy.

These flags are based upon the Appeal to Heaven flag.  But they advocate recycling.

 Runner Up #1, Earth as a Heaven?  By keeping Green?
 Heaven has to be in the words.
Someone said Hell is not a place but other people, consequently Heaven is neither a place but other people too.  The nice people.

An Appeal to Wookie Heaven Flag

In between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back was one of all time cheesiest movies created for mankind, The Star Wars Holiday Special 1978.  In it, the original crew heads to Chewie's planet to celebrate Life Day, at the tree of life.  Here the tree of life is honored with glowing balls.

This flag is based upon the fusion of the original Appeal to Heaven flag from the American Revolution of 1776.

Here is shot from the original made for TV movie that shows Chewbacca with his son Lumpy with Tree of Life icons, which are included in the flag.

 Here are the runner ups for the fun flag.
 The civilization in Star Wars was only technologically developed keep order in one galaxy, in a galaxy far far away, a long time ago- as are all galaxy's that we see, being far away and from long ago.

An Appeal to Heaven, for Buddhism

 One of the lesser popular flags of the American Revolution is the An Appeal to Heaven pine tree flags.  Here they have been united with Buddhism.  Here the original Buddha is sitting under a Bodhi tree, to become the original Buddha.  He could of advanced to the next level, decided to stay and help his fellow beings in an act of compassion. 

This flag takes the original theme and takes it to India.
 Nirvana is more than just a band.
 Love and compassion are central tenants in all religions.  But each soul is free to choose which level of love and compassion it chooses to embrace.
The world changed when one of the humans saw more than the little ego.

Game of Thrones, An Appeal to Heaven Flag Fun

This flag captures the spirit of the American Revolution.  Rebelling against the kingdom was a dangerous thing to do, especially when holy powers that be require that people be lead under a kingdom.  But when applied to The Weirwod, from the Game of Thrones on HBO, we get some fun flags that fans can play with.

A basic theme keeping the original tag and new tree.
Seven is an important number in the Game of Thrones.
More focused on the Seven, a flag it is.
The Lord of Light has always been popular in Castle Fantasy Times.
You often hear people say this line in the show.

An Appeal to Heaven, Original Testament Flavor

Plants have been used as symbols and ways to connect to the Divine.  The Original Testament had Moses learn from a certain type of burning bush, some say it was the Bramble Bush, known as the Holy Bush.

Stoking the flame of divine law, Moses was able to inspire millions, even those not of 12 Tribes including: Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Bahais, Mormons, and many others.


Wisdom is often the price of failure.
 The name of the supposed bush according to one text.

What most people think when speaking of the burning bush.

An Appeal to Heaven, for Christians

A US flag from the revolutionary era, hits the spirit of Christianity today!  Enjoy these fun faithful flags and shame not to feel the Jesus.

The standard sub of the sacred palm with the tree.

The reason why we sub a palm for the pine tree is here.
One of the many monikers for the Rasul of divine grace.

Having more fun with flags, which are often considered sacred, combined with a sacred space.

Flags in the Arrival - 2016

Several flags appear in the movie Arrival 2016.  The flags of the US, China, Denmark can easily be seen in a flash perception scene.  But a larger alien flag can also be seen that has non Solarian type of language written upon it.  This movie is fine wine science fiction, that is thoughtful for original star trek type of audience.  People who like booms and bangs realty shouldn't watch this movie. If you like OG sci-fi that makes you think, then go watch.  It is a movie that will give M. Night Shyamalan a run for his money.

The visitors have seven fingered 'hands' and are called heptapods.

Here the hero of the story is given a gift, which the aliens call a weapon.  In an odd way, writing is like a weapon, so one must be careful what one writes.  But like any tool it can be used for harm or good.  Consequently there are many who want to ban and regulate words, since time immemorial.
