More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Chevrolet Corvette, for its initial release in 1953, was originally going to have an emblem containing a checkered flag and the American flag. Chevrolet then decided that it might not be the best idea to put the American flag on the product (some sources claim that it was in violation of U.S. law to do so) just four days before the unveiling, so the redesign contained a red flag with the Chevrolet logo and a fleur-de-lis, which was said to have appeared on Louis Chevrolet’s family crest.
