We have just launched an exciting new, not-for-profit creative initiative called Fly Your Flag. Its aim is to encourage people across the world to visualise the future they want to see and, in the process, generate a far-reaching dialogue about hope and meaning in a post-Covid, post-2020 world.
Ahead of the launch on the 28th October, we asked some of the great and good of the design world to take part and submit a flag expressing the change they want to see in a reimagined world. So far, Anthony Burrill (UK), Eike König (Germany), Dana Robinson (US), Antoni & Alison (UK), James Victore (US), and Peim van der Sloot (NL) (among many others) have all submitted artworks.
On the day of the launch, we opened up the initiative to the wider world, encouraging anyone anywhere to get creative and get involved, flying the flag for what matters to them. Their submissions will appear alongside those of the well-known artists, designers and makers on our website (www.flyyourflag.world) and the Fly Your Flag Instagram page (@flyyourflag).
As well as appearing on the Fly Your Flag website, a selection of designs will also be produced as full-size flags and flown outside The Hoxton in Amsterdam who are supporting the initiative. The flags will be switched every two weeks until the end of the year, showcasing a variety of different artists, designs and topics.
If you are keen to find out more or get involved yourself, please visit the website. Whatever you are driven by, we invite you to make your voice heard and Fly Your Flag.
