Young Anakin Skywalker (later known as Darth Vader), still aged 6 in his Tatooine home world, participates in an illegal, dangerous sport -- pod racing. Each racer rides a small cockpit craft pulled by (typically) two oversized thrust engines, across a dramatic landscape of mesas, canyons and caves, at an average speed of some 850 mph...

Just before the start of the race, the flags of each racer (or of his sponsor) are shown, paraded across the start line by one of each racer's ground crew -- Anakin's flagholder being the robot C3PO (Cee Threepio).

The full list of podracers in the Boonta Classic edition featured in _The Phantom Menace_ seems to be of 25, compiled from several sources. I do not know weather all of them were visible in the final cut of the movie, though.

Anakin Skywalker

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

A white cloth, approx. 5:6, with a large squarish light blue horizontally symmetrical emblem on the hoist (actually covering most of the flag) and a golden monogram on the upper fly. Anakin Skywalker, a young human (caucasian) male, is arguebly the main character of this movie.

Ben Quadinaros

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

Five pennants hoisted together, each approx. 1:10 (thus totalizing approx. 1:2); the middle one is light yellow, the upper ones red, and the bottom ones orange. Sometimes refered to as Ben Quad*r*inaros (ed: asterisks here meaning bold typeface!), this racer is that cartoon looking chap who never gets his craft on the air.

Dud Bolt

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

A red flag approx. 1:2 hoisted under two pennants, each approx. 1:10, the top one light blue and the bottom one very dark blue. Dud Bolt is the one looking like a cartoon wolf, he gets smashed by Selbulba.

Boles Roor

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

A green flag approx. 2:5 hoisted under three white pennants, each approx. 1:10. This is one of the guys who plays at the Mos Espa casino, looks like a cross between a pig and the Notre Dame hunchback.

Gasgano

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

A yellow flag approx. 1:2 hoisted under two red pennants, each approx. 1:10. Gasgano is the skinny six armed character with funny glasses and emasculated facial features.

Mars Guo

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

Green (?) flag with large orange device, approx. 4:5. Mars Guo is a grey greenish character with big eyes, occipital crest and poodle face. His pod is sabotaged by Sebulba.

Ratts Tyrell

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

Light blue flag with a row of five intergral-sign-looking shapes, the hoist side one red and the others white, approx. 4:5. Small and nearly blind, Ratts is yet another casualty in this race.

Selbulba

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

The only flag of the lot that deserves a vexillographic mention: red cloth with a large square-tile yellow emblem on the hoist, and a black (or maybe very very dark blue?) vertical stripe accross the fly. Approx. specs are 2+11+2 : 2+9+2+3+3 for the flag and 9:7 for the emblem. Selbulba is the camel-spider cross like character that gets quite annoyed with Jar-jar Binks' reckless behaviour in Mos Espa. He cheats a lot throughout the whole race, but he's finnaly defeated (as usual).

Teemto Pagalies

[Fictional flag from Star Wars]
by Antonio Martins

A golden flag with a white (?) irregular disc slightly intersecting the hoist; on it, a red emblem issuan from the hoist. Teemto is the hogg like racer -- not unlike Jabba's guards from _The Return of the Jedi_, though those are gammorreans, and Teemto is a veknoid.
