Seikai no Senki [Banner of the Stars] was a 1999-2005 anime series. It is an epic-scale space opera, and is based on a series of SF novels. It is also mildly controversial, as the four major adversaries bear a distinct resemblance to the Allied powers of WWII, and the Empire resembles a highly sanitized Axis. The creator has however dismissed charges of historical revisionism, saying that he has merely drawn an interesting scenario from history.

United Mankind

[Flag of United Mankind]
by Eugene Ipavec, 5 may 2005

In the series, the UM is the most powerful of four galactic powers allied against the Human-Abh Empire. The United Mankind flag shows up hanging in the office of the planetary governor of Aptic, and is an odd design indeed; dark blue, with a sawtoothed border of four spikes on top and three at the side, and golden chevrons at the corners. There is also a central device, probably either a sun with planets or a planet with moons. (Or a nucleus with electrons, but that's not very likely.)

The titular "banner of the stars" is the Empire's flag, which has yet to be depicted onscreen. Eugene Ipavec, 23 february 2006
