Guessing you mean Pocatello, Idaho, the one made infamous by a TED talk a few years back? They redesigned it and the new one's actually pretty great.

The artillery bear flag is based on an actual bear, who served with the unit in World War II and *did* carry artillery shells.

I was recently informed that Iko Iko is about Mardi Gras tribes having beef. No idea how true that is but I'm willing to accept it. Said tribes now fight by finding out who's the prettiest.

Yup. Mardi Gras Indians don't really fight anymore. They compete, as you said, on who's the "prettiest." It's not like you just go to a store and buy a costume; it's a year-long endeavor, and it engenders respect. The cops are still in full force in their parades but it's more about policing the crowd than the Indians themselves.

Yeah, a bear with a freaking halberd is pretty badass. But otherwise it's a pretty drab design.


It doesn't really have any movement or anything..It's just a cool picture..Not really a great flag..
