Jeremiah is a tv show set 15 years after "the big death", a man made virus which killed everyone over the age of puberty.

The kids, now all grown up, are trying to bring back some form of civilisation.

Daniel's territory

[Daniel's territory]
by Marc Pasquin, 16 march 2005

One faction on the show, lead by the charismatic and fascistic Daniel, has taken over many cities and rebuilt part of them using slave labour.

Symbol wise, the phoenix (notice it is not the heraldic one but an american bald eagle) can be taken to represent the new world coming out of the old yet still the same (one of Daniel's quoted claim is "getting things back to normal").

Point should be given to the prop department (and/or the writer) for avoiding to overused nazi flag.

Western Alliance

[western alliance]

In the episode called "interegnum" (part 1) of the US tv serie "Jeremiah", we finaly get to see the flag of the Western Alliance: the current US national flag. It is not defaced or modified in any way which I must admit made me a tad disapointed considering the good job the prop department did on Daniel's flag.

Its use is explained by one of the character who make a speech about using the "good old symbol" that everyone know (their adversaries claim to go back to the way things were before the disaster but use new symbols) and a voice over saying that for 3 minutes no one said anything but just stared in awe as the flag floated .

On a side note, this scene of the good guys taking the US flag as their symbol probably pass better in the USA then in other countries where people might have taken the speech in a slightly different way (not a judgement, just an observation).
