Flash Gordon (1980)|
Mistakenly reported as a square and compasses, the emblem is clearly seen throughout the film, on goggles [00:18:00], Klytus's chest armour [00:19:00, 01:03:33, 36:00], Kala's uniform [00:43:30], a reception area counter [00:56:00] and in numerous other scenes. It is clearly not a square and compasses.
Noteworthy, but not specifically masonic, are a number of other references. At one point Ming draws his open hand across his throat [00:38:00]. The Princess says: "I love initiations." [00:57:40]. Before forcing Flash to undergo an initiation, Prince Barin says: "You came here of your own free will, earthing." [01:08:00]. When Klytus dies, the hawk king says: "the first step forward." [01:21:24]. And Flash says to Prince Vultan: "Level with me Vultan, will this do it?" [01:39:00]
