Unidentified Flag or Ensign

by Eugene Ipavec, 20 july 2005

This flag appears in the episode "The Gladiators." The production apparently didn't have a lot of money left over for innovative prop design after all those ape costumes, as the flag is very simple; a red field with a black-outline chimpanzee head in profile facing hoistward.

Does it actualy represent the planet, the government of the planet or one of the ape race ?
Marc Pasquin, 20 july 2005

I would say the government, but I'm not sure of it. The flag flew over a civic gladiatorial arena in an ape-governed town. I took it to be that of the simian government, especially since a large version hung from the governor's podium. But there were no references to it in the show, and I've only seen the one episode--quite awful, btw--so I can't vouch. It could have been the town's flag, or the governor's, though the generic-ness of the design suggests--to me--that it was supposed to represent the ape regime as a whole. If that's insufficient you can label it a UFE.

If it had a chimp head and flew in an ape town, I'd assume it was the whole planet- chimps, apes, and orangutans don't get along in the series, and unite only in the government.

I've found a screenshot from the series that includes the flag, though in the background and out of focus.
