Adbusters: The Flag of Union hat einen Design-Contest ausgeschrieben:

These are real targets, worthy of our problem-solving skills, ripe for our intervention. Yet those who have the vision to rise above national and political boundaries still have no symbol to rally under. We invite you to create a flag – free from language and well-worn clichés – that embodies the idea of global citizenship. A symbol that triggers pride and cohesion, whether worn on a backpack, displayed on a door, or flown on a flagpole. A symbol for anyone to declare membership in a growing and vital human cooperative.

Die 32 Finalisten sind hochinteressant, und meinen deutlichen Favoriten habe ich bereits ausgemacht, „The Flag of Union“.

While creating the concept for my version of the universal flag, I established two constraints. The first, simplicity, and the second, effectiveness. With little detail, I gave it a narrative side, so it would be understandable and accessible. I chose an uncomplicated image of the world by uniting all the continents together, which adds a dynamic to the design. White represents peace, togetherness, and life. Blue is the color of sky, water, tranquility and the planet earth itself. My idea for One Flag was to represent our planet’s unification, where each part of the world contributes to its whole.

Die letzten beiden Punkte sind die beiden wohl wichtigsten: die Einzigartigkeit mit der sich jeder Mensch identifizieren kann, logischerweise die Form des Planeten, unserer Kontinente. Und zweitens das Streben nach einem höheren Ziel, ausgedrückt durch die Bewegung die in der Flagge steckt.

Ich werde die Designerin der Flagge mal anmailen, unter welcher Lizenz sie freigegeben ist.
