One World Flag Ideas

flags

At the blog Make Wealth History, my blogger comrade Jeremy recently posted the above images of designs for one-world flags that were created in response to a call from Adbusters magazine. 

I did not really like the winning flag in the contest—You can see it by clicking here. Though the idea behind the winning flag is useful enough.

I really don’t have any problem with most people in the world. I don’t feel a border exists between me and most people.

  1. if we like it or not or want it or not there are some pretty big borders between us and the rest of the world.

    religious- there are millions that want us dead for not believing the same way as them. millions

    economic- as we blog and talk on cell phones and txt eat and waste and dont turn off lights and use too much gas and dont take the bus etc… there are millions starving and dying and wanting nothing more than some food and shelter

    there are borders as tall as the mountains mexico city sits on and as deep as the ocean floor. nice to pretend there is not.

  6. Hi, I am David Bartholomew, originator of the One World Flag– an international symbol of diversity, since 1996. There are many individual versions/creations of such an idea in existence, and each strikes a unique chord. I believe the idea here is to continue to hold the vision of an ideal and to work toward it, focusing on solutions where so many get stuck on the fact there are problems and that we are not there yet. You can visit http://www.oneworldflag for the image that came through me, and a good page that details some of the better known ones is http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/worldflag.html.

  7. Mr. Bartholomew–Great to have you here. I’m going to use your comment here as a spur to use this post again for an upcoming Flag Day post. Thank you for stopping by the blog.
