Your design will be included in the growing archive collection that captures current feeling about climate change. Many designs are made into large flags. When these flags fly together, they create a stunning display that sends out our collective messages. These will fly over the coming years at venues around the country and further afield.

Large flags and their meanings will appear on our website and be part of a book “Environmental Distress Signal Flags”.
