Saul of the Mole Men was a U.S. TV show which aired in 2007 on the Adult Swim network. Live-action, with deliberately bad special effects and abominable acting, it was basically a (mostly) affectionate sendup of low-budget 1970s science-fiction, notably the work of Sid and Marty Krofft (Land of the Lost), Tom Baker-era Doctor Who and the Planet of the Apes franchise.

The plot nominally involved a team of underground explorers in the employ of a government agency called Strata, on their way to the center of the Earth to avert some kind of catastrophe. I say «nominally» as the entire cast except for the titular nebbishy geologist Saul is horribly killed in the first minute of the first episode, with the rest of the series mostly spent following him around on various idiotic adventures in the subterranean kingdom of the Mole Men, actually people in awful costumes with big plastic googly eyes.

Kambala flag
by Eugene Ipavec, 25 Feb 2010

The flag of Strata was shown in a trailer for the series: ~3:4, dark brown with a centered emblem, consisting of the word "STRATA" (with obvious geological connotations) in a white NASA-esque font over a shovel stuck into a pile of dirt, this over a stack of increasingly thick orange inverted chevrons forming a kind of directional pointer downwards, and all of this over a brown double spiral on a dark red circle, fimbriated first in brown and then white.

Kingdom of the Mole Men

The Kingdom of the Mole Men — in whose politics Saul gets entangled when he accidentally assassinates the king, setting off a succession struggle — has a flag also, red with yellow symbols, probably writing.
