In the Marx brothers 1933 movie, "Duck Soup", Groucho plays Rufus T Firefly, leader of Freedonia. I googled and found a number of "imagi-nations" by that name, but the only mention of the flag of the original Freedonia said it had an "F" on it. Does anyone know anything more?

I do have the movie and I try produce the image of the flag. Of course I wouldn't know the colour of it, because it's a black and white film.

"The film opens with the flag of Freedonia (emblazoned with an "F") flying over the small village."
"in neighboring Sylvania (introduced with a waving flag with an emblazoned "S")"
