Introduction

Back in the 70s there was a very interesting UK/Canada co-production called "Power Play", about the planning and execution of a military coup in a fictional and un-named possibly European country (it was filmed in Yugoslavia IIRC). It was inspired by Edawrk Luttwak's "Coup D'Etat: A Practical Handbook".
Roy Stilling, 10 February 1996


The movie was completed in 1978, and was filmed mainly in Canada with an international cast.

The country used a vertical tricolour of blue, yellow and green. It was used very consistently throughout, with it appearing on all the military vehicles.
