International Flag of Planet Earth
I wonder how science has evolved rapidly since the invention of the airplane by Santos Dumont until the modern technology. In a few decades, humanity flies not only on planet Earth. Is present through probes or robots on Mars and orbiting the dwarf planet Ceres and several moons of other worlds.
Neil Armstrong planted an American flag in the lunar soil. Considering this, I wonder: Americans would also place a flag on Mars, if they got there first? In addition, if so, they would be the owners of the planet? Of course, Mars has no owner, but who gets there first can be considered the owner. Really?
Many people think so, but Oskar Pernefeldt of Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden, does not think this way. He created an international Flag of Planet Earth , hoping that one day it is put on Mars or any other planet, rather than the flag of a country.
Your flag has an important symbolism. It was designed in the blue color that symbolizes water, an essential ingredient for life on Earth. The blue color serves to unite the country.
The blue will stand out in white space suits. It could be currently used in the clothes of the astronauts, replacing the flags of the European Union, the United States and Russia.
Oskar told the British newspaper MailOnline that his inspiration for the project came from a desire to signal the planet where we came from. This is essential for the operation of other places out of the ground if we find extraterrestrial life:
“I wondered for a long time, why the planet Earth has no flag,” he said, alluding to how the ships often have flags that denote their country of origin.
“But now we navigate through different worlds in space and we need to signal the planet where we came from.”
