Earth

earth flag
image by António Martins, 12 Sep 2003

On the Leela zone Futurama’s fansite, tou can see the Earth’s Flag from the animated TV series. In this particular episode (“A taste of freedom”), Dr.Zoidberg gets the death-penalty because he ate the flag.
J. Patrick Fischer, 25 Jan 2003

Since it is just a regular US flag with an image of Earth (Americas showing) instead of the stars, I suppose it fits within the historical / satyrical setting of the series.
António Martins, 12 Sep 2003

A simplified version of this flag (plain disc, less stripes) showa in the episode “The Tip of the Zoidberg”, in use as a tank flag, along with the MomCorp flag (see screenshot).

Earth Flag, vertical version

earth flag
image by António Martins and Eugene Ipavec, 02 Mar 2005

This flag appears at the back of the Earth Legislature chamber in the episode “When Aliens Attack”. The vertical-hoist equivalent of the regular Earth flag, presumably.

Mongolia

Mongol’s flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 06 Jul 2005

In the episode “The Cryonic Woman”, Fry and Bender borrow the spaceship for a joyride, inadvertently dragging along the entire Planet Express building, to which they are unknowingly moored by an unbreakable diamond tether. A brief sight gag has the building smashing a hole in the Great Wall of China, instantly causing nomadic warriors on horseback to flood through. The flag they carry is that of Mongolia, except with altered colors — gold/yellow/gold instead of red/blue/red, and the soyonbo in red insted of yellow.

U.S. (modified Gadsden)

Foulded Gadsden flag
image by António Martins, 19 Nov 2011

In the episode “All the Presidents’ Heads”, the Futurama crew travels several times through time, but once they finally come back, it is shown that Bender changed Gadsden flag in the past to his version
Aleksandar Nemet, 01 Oct 2011

It shows the rattlesnake replaced with the likeness of Bender the robot, likwise in an aggressive stance, and the legend changed to read «Bite my fhiny metal aff» — this is supposed to read «Bite my shiny metal ass», with letters "f" standing for the correct sharp "s": "ſ" (the propper spelling for the last word was "aſs", however). Please note that after distorting the flag shape (~3:4) the robot likeness looks more deformed than in the original, for faulty perspective due to the intentionally “rough” drawing style of Futurama.

Real national flags in fictional use

At the torchlighting ceremony of the 3004 Olympic (the “Bend Her” episode), two very small flags waved by audience members are visible: One is the flag of Belgium; the other seems to be the flag of Chile.
T. Mike and Marc Pasquin, 17 Feb 2005

On the same scene as the modified Gadsden flag another historical U.S. flag, the “betsy Ross” design of the national flag, also modified to have the canton taking up only 6 stripes, not 7, although that’s probably negligence, not one more of Bender’s mischeif in the fictional altered present/future.

Cyberia

cyberian flag
by Eugene Ipavec, 25 Feb 2005

The flag of Cyberia is seen in the “Bend Her” episode, flown at the 3004 Olympics: Light blue field with centered darker blue diamond. Inside the diamond is a device consisting of a grey (or maybe silver) vertical 4 fingered robot fist clenching a yellow lightning bolt. (screengrab).

Decapodia 10

[]

Purple hanging banner

decapodian flag
image by Eugene Ipavec

A thin vertical purple swallowtail can be seen behind the Decapodian ruler when he presides over Fry & Zoidberg’s fight to the death (Episode: “Why Must I Be a Crustacean In Love?”, “fight to the death” scene) (screengrab from www.gotfuturama.com).

Blue waves on pink

decapodian flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 26 Feb 2005

At the spaceport (Episode: “Why Must I Be a Crustacean In Love?”, “spaceport” scene), a pink field with the lower fourth in blue in a wave motif, the waves cresting from left to right.
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

It appears above the welcome booth at the Decapodia spaceport. I think this might be a festival flag for the Mating Frenzy.

Pink stripes on purple

decapodian flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 26 Feb 2005

This flag can be seen in the ambassador’s office (Episode: “A Taste of Freedom”, “Embassy” scene).It is a rather festive design with twin narrow purple stripes on a violet background.
Eugene Ipavec, 26 Feb 2005

Nazi-stripe flag with Soviet-style emblem

decapodian flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 26 Feb 2005

There’s also a different, furled flag in “A Taste of Freedom” (Episode: “A Taste of Freedom”, “Mobile Oppression Palace” scene; screengrab).
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

This flag can be seen flying from the top of the Mobile Oppression Palace. It is likely the flag of the Decapodian occupation government of Earth — looks like an attempt to combine Nazi and Soviet symbols, with a white disk on a dark red field bearing a hammer in the grasp of a Decapodian claw.
Eugene Ipavec, 26 Feb 2005

Devil’s Island

Devil’s Island flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 28 Feb 2005

A 3004 Olympics participant. Apparently an independent state by then. A field of vertical green and dark blue stripes — four and five, respectively — overlaid with the device of a yellow-eyed, bright-red devil’s head in profile, facing left.It appears in the episode “Bend Her”.

Globetrotters Homeworld

klingons’ flag
by Eugene Ipavec, 25 Feb 2005

The episode “A taste of freedom” shows The Globetrotters’ Homeworld flag (see Screengrab).
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

The Globetrotter Homeworld — The Harlem Globetrotters are a contemporary U.S. trick-basketball team. In Futurama they have their own planet, from whence they occasionally emerge to challenge hapless Earthlings to pick-up games. The flag appears on embassy row in “The Taste of Freedom”. It’s actually a rather nice design, based on the Stars-and-Stripes motif of Globetrotter uniforms.
Eugene Ipavec, 25 Feb 2005

Klingons

Klingons’ flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 24 Feb 2005

The episode “A taste of freedom” shows a “Klingon” flag (Screengrab).
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

For those who may be unaware, the Klingons (from the TV show Star Trek) are an empire of uber-violent warriors who live for nothing but valor on the battlefield and honor in death. The humor inherent in giving them a purple-daisy-on-pink flag (to say nothing of making the Klingon Embassy look like a Barbie Dream House) should now become evident.
Eugene Ipavec, 18 Feb 2005

Nation of Joe

Nation of joe’s flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 28 Feb 2005

The flag of the Nation of Joe is seen in the “Bend Her” episode, flown at the 3004 Olympics: Red field with Joe’s head on it. (screengrab from www.Gotfuturama.com).
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

Neutrals

Damn neutral flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 24 Feb 2005

I believe their flag is grey, based on the episode “Taste of Freedom”. The color of the embassy was grey, and the flag matched the embassy color, grey.
Zachary Harden, 04 Nov 2004

From a symbolic stanpoint, grey would indeed make it neutral in a “black or white” context.
Marc Pasquin, 04 Nov 2004

The flag is completely beige (Screengrab).
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

The planet was first seen in the episode “Brannigan Begin Again”. (Capital: Neutropolis; Motto: “Live Free Or Don’t”). The flag can be seen in the president’s office, as well as on embassy row in “The Taste of Freedom”.
Eugene Ipavec, 24 Feb 2005

Omicronians

The Omicronians appear to have some kind of banner (vexilloid?) in the “Spanish Fry” episode (Screengrab).

Democratic Order Of Planets (DOOP)

doop flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 2 Mar 2005

DOOP stands for Democratic Order of Planets. The interstellar government of the year 3000 in the comedy series Futurama, and an amusing satire of Star Trek’s Federation. The flag is in the UN style, with DOOP centered in lowercase in a deliberately retro-70s font. Though the field is a darker blue, and those look like olive branches, not laurel. The whirly-atoms symbol over which ’DOOP’ is superimposed bears a striking resemblance to that of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, by the way.
Eugene Ipavec, 2 Nov 2004

This flag is first seen in the “Brannigan, Begin Again” episode: When Brannigan is court-martialed, he makes Kif wave this flag behind him to add drama to his farewell speech. (Here’s a link to someone else’s screen shot.)
T. Mike, 17 Feb 2005

A few notes on this flag: first off the UN branches I believe are olive as well. (I don’t believe that it was ever stated what the branches are on the DOOP flag, but olive is a good assumption.) Secondly, the font on the flag I think should be a bit “heavier”, maybe bold?
David Kendall, 24 Feb 2005

Really? Peasant that I am I merely assumed they were laurel. They looked somehow laurel-y. I have no idea what the DOOP branches are supposed to be. They look like they need to be watered though.
Eugene Ipavec , 24 Feb 2005

DOOP’s Emblem

doop’s emblem
image by Eugene Ipavec, 2 Mar 2005

It first appears in the episode “Brannigan Begin Again”, as does the flag. Simply the ’DOOP’ symbol in an oval blue shield. The only difference from the flag is that the small spheres in the elliptical orbits in the center of the symbol are a) larger and b) golden.
Eugene Ipavec , 2 Mar 2005

DOOP’s Roundel

doop’s roundel
image by Eugene Ipavec, 2 Mar 2005

There’s a DOOP spacecraft roundel too. It shows up fairly often — every episode that features the Nimbus. A simplified, unicolored version of the logo.
Eugene Ipavec , 2 Mar 2005

Momcorp

[]

Purple heart flag

This is most probably a flag of the MomCorp owned by the Mom, although there is already one flag of MomCorp presented. Here is a screenshot with visible flag together with Earth flag More about this episode “The Tip of the Zoidberg” and the Mom, fictional character from Futurama read on Wikipedia.
Aleksandar Nemet, 16 Oct 2011

Name banner

Red field, black letters spelling MOM
image by Eugene Ipavec, 06 Jul 2005

The company flag of Mom’s Friendly Robot Company — a division of the megaconglomerate Momcorp, and the manufacturer of one of the series’ cast members, Bender the debauched robot, appears in the episode “Mother’s Day”. A screengrab can be seen here.
Eugene Ipavec, 13 Feb 2006

Olympic Comitee

cyberian flag
image by Eugene Ipavec, 28 Feb 2005

In the episode “Bend Her”, the Olympic Comitee’s flag at the 3004 Olympics has an extra two rings, for a total of seven.
Eugene Ipavec, 18 Feb 2005

Probably as a joke, but also getting around very strict IOC restrictions on non-olympic use of the official symbol.
David Kendall, 18 Feb 2005

Space Pirates

space pirates
image by Eugene Ipavec, 27 Mar 2005

The Space Pirates, who have a part in the opening scenes of episode “Godfellas”. Points of interest include a three-eyed skull, odd curved-pennant shape and the choice of maroon instead of black, presumably for enhanced visibility in space.

At the 3004 Olympics

UFE
image by Eugene Ipavec, 02 Mar 2005

An UFE national flag that appears at the 3004 Olympics. Included for the sake of completeness. Looks like Djibouti, but the details are wrong.

Unidentified Aliens

UFE
image by Eugene Ipavec, 25 Feb 2005

The flag of the nasally endowed — and rather sensitive about it — aliens that invade Earth in one of the Futurama comic books.
