Caddyshack Flags, the classic 1980s golf comedy

Golf is a choice game for vexillologists, since flags play a critical role in the game. Players take aim at a flag after all. Their hope is to get closer and closer to the flag. Eventually players or caddies are allowed to lift the flag. Golf certainly is a vexillological delight.

Starring Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Rodney Dangerfield Caddyshack became the iconic Country Club comedy of the decadent 80s. Caddyshack lampoons the various personalities that convene around a country club golf course - the fancy pants snobs, old farts, new money, arrogant jerks, gifted geniuses, spoiled brats, and of course young and ambitious rascal caddies. This movie proves that rich people are funny too.

A victory dance around the 18th hole!
