Current expeditions in outer space use different national flags depending on which country is funding the voyage. The space travellers, however, are more than just representatives of their own countries.
They are all representatives 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.
A fantastic idea – here’s hoping we can finally unite under one flag in the not too distant future.
