Introduction

The film The life aquatic with Steve Zissou is a comedy, about a past-his-prime Jacques Cousteau-like underwater documentary maker, Steve Zissou, and his team. Part of the plot revolves around competition between Zissou and his run-down and ramshackle crew and the efficient, rich, corporate-funded team of his arch rival, Hennessey.

Team Zissou

Original Flag

Zissou's flag is simple and shabby – three coloured Zs attached to a square of white cloth.

Later Flag

At a late stage in the movie Zissou's son Ned attempts to "modernise" the flag of Team Zissou by crudely drawing a lifebelt, a dolphin, an octopus and an anchor, accompanied by letters: E for Esteban, a deceased former crewmate, K for Klaus, second-in-command of the team's boat (the "Belafonte"), N for Ned, and B for the "Belafonte" itself.

My drawing of the dolphin and octopus were freehand and pretty poor (then again, so were the originals in the film)

The Zissou flag to me looks the more stylish one (when compared to Operation Hennessey), and the later additions don't even subtract all that much from that, even if they are in the wrong shades. It may be that your drawing skills flatter them, though.

Operation Hennessey

Hennessey's flag, by comparison to Team Zissou, looks steely and corporate, a bold black and silver H on a mid-grey background (quite useless for visibility at sea but attractive enough nonetheless).

I have used white to represent silver (the flag itself had metallic areas).

I know I my opinions tend to differ from those of the majority, but to me the Hennesey flag looks cheap; department-store-y.
