Earth: Final Conflict was a US science-fiction TV series of the late 1990s/early 2000s. The plot concerned the arrival on Earth of a race of enigmatic, mystical and outwardly beneficent aliens, the Taelons, who bestow peace and prosperity upon the world, but have a sinister secret purpose in store for humanity. Made from a concept by Gene Rodenberry, the creator of Star Trek, it was unfortunately a rather confused show, never really deciding what it wanted to be. Still, it managed four decent seasons; the fifth was a total train wreck, and the series was granted a merciful cancellation.

Taelon Synod

[Taelon Synod]

The Taelon flag appears in the very first episode, as a Taelon ambassador is about to arrive for a ceremony in an outdoor plaza. An image is available here, its not very clear, but it bears the aliens' logo, which appears regularly elsewhere in the series. Here it seems to have been placed on a simple white background.The logo consists of two horizontal, interwoven brackets, purple (top) and teal (bottom). Interestingly, the flag has them the other way around, leading one to suspect it was hoisted upside-down.
