Introduction

The movie Ladyhawke, directed by Richard Donner, with Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer, tells the story of a french couple in love, Captain Etienne Navarre and Isabeau Dante, subject to a terrible curse set upon them by the jealous Bishop, also in love with Isabeau: they only live in human form for half the day, he during the day, and she during the night. The rest of the time, he is a wolf, she is a hawk, and they only meet for brief instants during the metamorphosis, at dawn and in the sunset.

Unidentified flag


by Jorge Candeias

In the movie, there's a long battle sequence, in the end, that takes place inside an abbey or a church, which is decorated with 10 or more identical flags hanging from poles mounted on the columns, with an inclination of some 30 or so. The flags are black and white, horizontally divided, in a pattern similar to rays, or flames. Unfortunately, since the display is interior, all the flags are folded in a similar fashion and never unfold, so that they are never seen clearly enough to count the number of rays, check their dimensions, or accurately determine what percentage of the flag is black and what percentage of it is white. the movie is a nice love story, and this flag is very adequate to represent the whole of it, even if it only appears in one sequence.
