Its green and white stripes indicate the constant multiple, condition of parallel active and dormant chlorophyll regions. Later expanded to include those deadly devices permitted under the Guild Peace and Great Convention.
When I first saw it, I was deeply disappointed. Even the score by Toto managed to grow on me. Yes, Lynch changed some things about Dune, but the changes were for the better.
