A Futuristic Flag for Earth
on 20 May 2015
When American astronauts first landed on the moon, it seemed natural to plant the flag of the United States. But what happens when an international team of space-explorers venture beyond our orbit? They'll be representing their own nations, but also the entire planet Earth. Recognizing this, 24-year-old Oskar Pernefeldt has designed a new flag called the International Flag of Planet Earth. The design features a set of interlocking rings enveloped in a sea of blue, illustrating the unified nations of Earth bound by their aqueous home planet.
