Iran appears to be removing the color green -- the color of the opposition movement -- from its flag, according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. The color green, it should be noted, is also the color of Islam. The color blue is the color of "Avatar." In "Avatar," evil is eventually defeated. Coincidence?

Iran's flag is composed of three bands of color: green, white, and red. But in at least two official ceremonies in recent days, images of that flag have been used where the green color has been replaced by blue.

The move has led to speculation that the Iranian government is trying to get rid of the green in the Iranian flag because it's a symbol of the opposition movement that has been challenging the disputed reelection of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad.
