Why Don’t We All Have a World Flag Flying?

I’ve been pondering this question for a week. It keeps coming back up. Seems like it’d be really nice to have a World Flag flying beside the U.S. flag and the Wisconsin flags in this community. You probably know what a big fan I am of Humanism over Nationalism, but yet it’s wonderful to be part of a community. Be cautious to never let that community energy act to exclude anyone else. The world flag is the ultimate in inclusion. Each thread of humanity is represented.

I naturally moved my thought to what it would look like. It feels like the four strands of humanity would all be represented equally: sunrise, midday, sunset and night. That is yellow, white, red and black. What a beautiful flag weaving these colors equally across the fabric… the true fabric of life. Other images come to mind: holding hands, yin and yang, equal exchangeable pieces, etc.

Then it occurred to me that each person might see this differently, from their unique and valuable perspective. How about we start an initiative in every grade school on the planet? How about having each teacher conducting a World Flag Day, when each child draws their own personal image of the flag, showing how they see the planet and humanity. Put it in the hands of the innocents, those closer to birth than us adults, those closer to the pure energy of God and the Universe. What a glorious creation that would be… thousands of beautiful world flags, displayed all over the planet.

Embrace your childhood energy and see what you come up with. Go ahead, draw something. Display it on your wall, your office, your front door, stick it on your bumper! I know what mine looks like, I can see it in my mind’s eye. As you might expect, mine will probably show up on a mug sometime in my kitchen cabinet…
