The Town of South Park

First Version

on the TV show "south park", the city after which the program is named was facing a flag problem: some people thought they should change the current flag due to some racist undertone in its design. Of course, some people, including the KKK, contested that the flag imagery should be kept since it is part of their history.

Second Version

The first attempt at reconciliation was to draw a smiley face on the hanged figure. It failed.

The final version was adopted after a school debate pointed that violence was indeed part of their common history but that the flag should be more multicultural.

You can find the synopsis of episode 55, 'Chef Goes Nanners' here. As it is with 'South Park', pretty little is sacred.

The poll that was taken was two in favor of the flag, two against the flag, and the rest undecided. This was intended to poke fun at the recent flag debates at the time (South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi).

La Resistance

[the town of south park]

In the South Park movie there is a war between the U.S. and Canada, and two Canadian actors (Terrance and Phillip, the favorite stars of the kids) are captured and they are going to be executed. The kids make a kind of "underground group" named "La Resistance" to free them.

By the way, the name of one of the Canadian stars: "Terrance" sometimes appears as "Terrence" if you search it on Internet. So I am not sure which one is the correct one.

As "La Résistance" the kids use a flag very similar to the anarcho-sindicalist flags: red and black with the name of the group in white letters. The flag is divided by the diagonal line, but this diagonal is displaced from the corners of the flag.

You can see a picture of that flag here.
