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.
