    I have an idea... let's do a poll version of this after there are enough nominations. I suppose it would then go under Art/Culture.

    this one is getting close
    replace the earth and moon with their picturial representations and add some red, brown, and white rays and you might have it

    The only value I can see to having an 'earth flag' is to represent the earth in computer games

    - in which case a flag of an eagle grasping a nuclear bomb in one talon and a bible in the other sounds just about right

    The flag with the sun, earth and moon posted above I have seen elsewhere... but I didn't like it because all it really says is "We're a planet with a sun and a moon". And most planets at least have a sun. It says nothing about us or any idealitic goals - which there might well be if some futuristic glorious empire took over the whole world!

    Secondly, you don't want a photographic flag, or a flag with too much detail. That's just lame. It should be simple and meaningful, like every decent coutry has. Spurious' for example, is quite simple and gets the point accross perfectly - "We're assholes - take us to your bar!"

    I thought blue would be a nice colour, because it's traditionally more rightwing - I think it would be hard to find glory in a poncy liberal society with benefits/anti totalitarianism etc... I'm thinking more "StarShip Troopers".

    The star is unfortunately somewhat familiar with Texus, Cuba, etc. But I would have thought more people would have drawn simile from the European Union flag.. which is the same except with more stars and being totally retro with it's non-widscreen (16:9) format

    we are talking about an earth flag not a humanity flag

    hmm? Obvously the flag is going to mean something like every nations flag does. If there are other colonies (now or in the future) then this would only be an earth flag... but for the time being it is both.

    I would like to change my design for the flag of the earth once again. It is a depiction of our favourite hobby, and maybe it will scare of invasion happy aliens.

    Yes, and somehow i managed to put in a communist red star, although trigger happy americanos might think it is an explosion.

    I read it as an explosion... prob something to do with the bomb.

    Good flag.

    Something to do with life and of water. That's what's so special about earth, it's life... which depends on water.
    Maybe a big flag with a yellow background with a blue circle in the center and a DNA molecule inside the circle, with some fancy stuff around it.
    All the others are boring if you ask me. Unity? what unity? a picture of the earth? gee, how original and symbolic.... etc.

    or maybe... maybe a BLUE background with a green circle and a DNA molecule inside it. The blue would dominate, reflecting that the earth is mostly water....and i like blue. The green would symbolize the land, which is not as much as the water... and i like green too.

    I tell you it must have yellow, for neutrality.

    what about a picture of earth on the flag,

    but make it 3d and spin, or hologram that has the illusion of it turning on axis or whatever.


    peace,
