Planet Earth Has a Flag

A new project by Oskar Pernefeldt, a graduate student at Beckmans College of Design, in Stockholm, Sweden, has designed a new flag for the entire planet to be used worldwide in a move toward unity. Its minimalist design shows seven rings intertwined on a deep, sea-blue background, forming a flower in the middle. Simple and contemporary, the flag evokes the Earth’s natural beauty.

“The blue field represents water, which is essential for life,” writes Pernefeldt. “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.” The flag has yet to be adopted by any official government agencies.
