The flag is showing a human and a plant. It’s a union between vegetation and human beings: together they become one. My hope for the planet is for humans to find a way to coexist with nature, in a respectful and sustainable way. So the general idea is to represent the fusion of the individuals in their environment.

A union between vegetation and human beings, a representation of a symbiosis between the individuals and their environment.
