“Does Earth need a flag?”
“Perhaps not, at least not until we have another planet on which to plant it (or another civilization with which to exchange diplomatic stationary). But that doesn’t mean actually designing one is a pointless process — as proven by the results of a new project to do exactly that.” ~ WIRED.co.uk
The International Flag of Planet Earth
PURPOSE OF THE FLAG
1. To be used while representing planet Earth.
2. To remind the people of Earth that we share this planet, no matter of national boundaries. That we should take care of each other and the planet we live on.
Centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. The rings are linked to each other, which represents how everything on our planet, directly or indirectly, are linked. The blue field represents water which is essential for life – also as the oceans cover most of our planet’s surface. The flower’s outer rings form a circle which could be seen as a symbol of Earth as a planet and the blue surface could represent the universe.
