How it all started
"I’ve often heard people say: ‘I wonder what it would feel like to be on board a spaceship,’ and the answer is very simple. What does it feel like? That’s all we have ever experienced. We are all astronauts on a little spaceship called Earth." -R. Buckminster Fuller
The Flags for the Earth project began life during a children’s workshop at Depot Basel in 2015, which involved creating flags for the Earth with children under the title “it’s all about intuition”.
Inspired by the resulting discussions we continued the project in 2016 by asking five graphic designers to design Flags for the Earth and then printing them as a limited poster series, available exclusively at our online shop.
Recent developments in the global political situation, and the ever increasing negative impact we have on our planet, are encouraging us to pursue the project further and give it an international orientation.
