Musekinin Kanchou Tylor [Irresponsible Captain Tylor] is a Japanese anime series that ran from 1993-1996.

Tylor was simultaneously a sendup of heroic space-opera and of their duty-and-responsibility ethic. It got a lot of mileage out of ridiculing the pomposity of the UPSF martinets and exagerated patriotic impulses in general.

United Planets Space Force

[United Planets Space Force]
by Eugene Ipavec, 19 March 2005

This is the flag of the United Planets Space Force. It was meant to be a extension of the parody elements inherent to the series (the logo looks suspiciously like a giant tomato). It appeared pretty often in the series: flying off the bow of the spaceship Soyokaze itself, actually (in a vacuum!)

And also looks even more suspiciously like the Japanese national flag! Being an anime show from Japan, I'm convinced this was intentional (like the "flag of earth" from Futurama, a US-based cartoon, having thirteen alternating red and white stripes, with a blue canton).
