The Flag is two sets of hands, an adult’s hands and child’s hands. The adult hands are passing the earth to the child. The hands are in silhouette to represent all the skin colors of the people on earth.
Every other flag on earth represents, or celebrates, a difference. I'm Canadian, German or Russian, I'm from this organization, or that organization. This flag does not. It can be flown by anyone, anywhere on earth.
Flags are powerful things. Every country on earth has one. Children in many countries pledge allegiance to their flag every morning in school. The image of the raising of a flag at Iwo Jima is a powerful, passionate image. When man went to the moon he planted a flag. And in the course of human history millions of men and women have followed a flag or banner into battle, to kill or be killed.
So flags are powerful things, and we believe this flag could be the most powerful of all, because it represents...all of us.
What would be the result, if for three generations children in one country could look at this flying over their home, school, government building, or at sporting events, and do so knowing that children in another country, though they have a different skin color, different religion, different politics, and different nationality, are looking at the same flag celebrating that commonality that is greater than our differences, that of being human?
I believe the results, the return on such an investment, would be huge, and quite possibility, priceless.
Never in the course of human history have we needed as much as now, for our own survival, to understand that we have more in common than our differences.
It is our fervent hope this flag will be flying over all the nations of the earth someday, reminding us of commonalities and celebrating that commonality of being human.
