Is "badge" the usual word for this?

Looks like you haven't updated the discussion links on this and other suggestions. You should probably do that, as time allows.

hey paok...

great idea for a poll...very unique...

however...the term, 'badge', is maybe known in your language, but in america, what you are referring to is known as a 'flag'...(in america, a badge is something a police officer, sheriff, etc. would normally wear...)

but once again...cool idea...

I like everything about this poll, except badge does seem off. American colors or American flag inspired would be better

alternative: "costumed tribute to  the Star Spangled Banner"

Which of these character's costumed tribute to the Star Spangled Banner looks the coolest?

This would be perfect poll for July 4th, USA independence day.

FYC: Betsy & Arlene from 'Dick'


FYC: Hope Annabelle Greggory The Bronze

I am sure there are a lot more out there
George Hamilton, George Eads or others as Evil Knievel
Will Farrell, SNL, any USA Olympic athlete character, etc.

Tyler Durden is not wearing an American flag shirt - the stars are grey and there are no stripes.

Captain America, Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Stargirl are merely wearing the US colors, but not the stars and stripes as that which represents the US.

FYC:
Betsy Jobs and Arlene Lorenzo - Dick - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0144168/mediaviewer/rm251238656
Katie Perry - Katy Perry: Part of Me - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2215719/mediaviewer/rm3972770304
Abbie Hoffman - Steal This Movie - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0161216/mediaviewer/rm787913216

These aren't all the US flag. To be accurate you should change it to Characters Wearing American Colors.

Please use the preferred capitalization, Characters Wearing the American Flag

(or "American Colors", if Jen's suggestion is better)

I would also suggest switching around options 4 and 6, simply because the image of Wonder Woman would be clearer when cropped.

This is just in case the poll ends up being featured by IMDb.

Your description should be "Which of these characters who wears the American flag looks the coolest?" or "Which of these characters who are wearing the American flag looks the coolest?

Is there a reason most of these are idiotic, and unfunny comedies?

American colors it should be, NOT the American flag. Using flag would be incorrect.

you should have included Gerard Butler in 'Geostorm'. a portion of scene is directly related to the fact that he's wearing the flag on his uniform on the space station. if this poll is actually related to what i was doing on this website Gerard would have been included. IMDB 's filters are pretty slack.

Hi Lyndell Netherton,

Thank you for the feedback.

This poll went live seven months ago on July 2, 2017. Geostorm (2017) debuted on October 20, 2017 after this poll went live.

This poll is based on an image list. None of the images in the gallery for Geostorm (2017) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1981128/mediaviewer/rm613033472) show Gerard Butler wearing the American flag on his uniform.

Even if there were an image showing Gerard Butler wearing the American flag on his uniform, it may not be sufficient to be included in this poll. Simply having a American flag badge would be too common. The American flag is a predominant part of the costumes in the images in this poll:
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls060850669/#1
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls060850669/mediaviewer/rm3995186176
http://www.imdb.com/poll/dE0RQy5IoO4/

This poll currently has 21 choices. If IMDb had an image of Gerard Butler wearing the American flag on his uniform in Geostorm (2017), the author of this poll could add that image to the end of his list and ask for a re-push.

Please consider commenting and/or liking other poll suggestions in the future. The poll admins base their poll selection in part on the response to a poll suggestion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_the_United_States#Flag_etiquette

Section 8, entitled Respect For Flag states in part:
"The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery",
and
"No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform".

Although the Flag Code is U.S. federal law,
there is no penalty for a private citizen or group
failing to comply with the Flag Code
and it is not widely enforced—indeed,
punitive enforcement would conflict with
the First Amendment right to freedom of speech.
Passage of the proposed Flag Desecration Amendment
would overrule legal precedent that has been established.
