We share this planet.



This is the International Flag of the Planet Earth.

In May 2015 a Swedish artist, Oskar Pernefeldt, formally proposed the International Flag of the Planet Earth. It was conceived to be used in space expeditions and it has two main purposes:

  1. To be used while representing planet Earth.
  2. To remind the people of Earth that we share this planet, no matter of national boundaries. That we should take care of each other and the planet we live on.

In the recent tragedies and conflict, I think we should be reminded that not only one or two nations are victims, but that each of us living on Earth is. All of us are victims of wars; of local and international conflicts and disputes; of differences in race and in faith; and of natural and man-made calamities. We should be reminded that we share one home.

You don’t have to change your profile picture for the world to see that you support Earth. You just have to practice it.
