Flags of Peace - Creating an international visual dialogue on peace Throughout history there have been several attempts to establish a peace flag. A universal collection of symbols exist that we associate with peace yet no single peace flag has gained complete international recognition and permanence. What defines peace? How could it be symbolised? And what must a peace flag achieve? With the project, Flags of Peace, design agency Trapped in Suburbia seeks to answer these questions. The project aims to gather a flag design from every nation in the world. Through contributions from both established and young talented designers it creates a visual dialogue around peace and its symbolism. Together the flags present a global spectrum of ideas on peace, each highlighting particular relationships and views towards the topic. Flags of Peace is a work in progress; more flags are still to come. Flags of Peace is a travelling exhibition. For information on upcoming exhibitions check the Flags of Peace Facebook page. See photos of previous exhibitions below. 1891 White Flag The oldest known symbol of peace to be devised into a flag design was the white flag. With mentioned uses going back to AD 25, the white flag was originally recognised in conflict as the flag of surrender, truce or ceasefire. However, it was only until 1891 at the third Universal Peace Congress in Rome that the white flag took on a generalised form. This design, created by Henry Pettit, featured a nation’s flag surround by a white border signifying resolution to conflict. This particular approach was adopted by the American Peace Society and the Universal Peace Union, although never officially. Today, the blank white flag is more commonly used with more recent reversions such as Aaron Fein’s white appropriations of 192 nations’ flags. 1913 Earth Flag Claimed to be the first world peace flag, the Earth Flag designed by James William van Kirk, a Methodist minister from Ohio, USA, saw the initial usage of the rainbow in this context. This spectrum represented all the variations of the human race. Difference but united in global peace. In 1913 and 1929, Kirk travelled through Europe on peace tours, accompanied by his flag. The Universal Peace Congress held in The Hague, The Netherlands accepted Kirk’s flag as the official World Peace Flag. Since then it has been adopted by the American Peace Society and other groups. Yet again this proposal has not gained complete global acceptance or continual use. 1958 Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament Aside from early Christian symbols for peace such as the dove and the olive branch, the icon that has gained most recognition of peace is the logo designed for the British Nuclear Disarmament movement in 1958. Known today as ‘the peace symbol’ this icon was designed by Gerald Holtom, a British artist and designer, for a march in Trafalgar Square, London. The symbol has two origins: the first being a combination of the semaphore signals for the letters ’N’ and ‘D’ - standing for ‘nuclear disarmament’. The second being Holtom’s illustration of a figure in despair with their arms outstretched in a downwards direction. Since it’s initial creation it has been used by many individuals, activism groups and the military. Previously the symbol had no patent or restrictions but in 1970 two American companies attempted to register it as a trade mark. Their efforts were unsuccessful and the icon continues to be used across the world on flags and merchandise representing peace. 1961 Rainbow Flag Possibly the most common recent design is the rainbow flag. It originates from a peace march in 1961 in Italy with the design being inspired by a similar multi-coloured flag used in demonstrations against nuclear weapons. The most common variety consists of seven colours, often confused with the eight or six striped flags of the LGBT movement. The peace flag is often emblazoned with the word ‘Peace’ in the nation’s respective language. Pablo Picasso also created a version featuring a dove illustration. The flag is said to have gained more recognition in 2002 in a campaign against the impending war in Iraq. Although, it’s main usage existed in Italy.

Some follow a structure, some are totally off and overlaping. But they are all living together, sharing and exchanging - respectfully. Close Australia Garbett Garbett Unity circle - To move towards peace, we need to think in terms of what unites us, not what divides us. We are unified by our shared humanity, by our home planet earth. A circle: signifying unity, signifying earth. A symbol that is universal. It is a symbol so simple that can be drawn by a child. It is a symbol that belongs to everyone already. Close Austria Elisabeth Kopf Elisabeth Kopf - Design Buero Baustelle PEACE IS HUMAN. The seed of peace are the children. This little refugee is the lucky bird who didn’t get killed in the war. He didn’t become a boy soldier. He didn’t drown in the Sea. He was saved and people invited him to their home. They provide food and clothing and they will educate him. Tomorrow he and all saved boys and girls will be peace messengers.
