A new flag has been proposed to represent planet Earth’s astronauts and spaceships on their journey into the cosmos.

The flag, which has yet to be officially adopted, was drawn up by a designer with contributions from NASA and other organisations.

The design consists of seven inter-linked white rings on a blue background. and wasd esigned by Oskar Pernefeldt.  The linked rings  represent the interdependence of life on earth, while the blue would allude to the planet’s vast oceans.

Pernefeldt, a Swedish design researcher explains “centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. The rings are linked to each other, which represents how everything on our planet, directly or indirectly, are linked”.

“The blue field represents water which is essential for life – also as the oceans cover most of our planet's surface. The flower's outer rings form a circle which could be seen as a symbol of Earth as a planet and the blue surface could represent the universe.”
The new symbol could prove useful in future as joint missions like the International Space Station become more commons.

The flag, formally known as the International Flag of Planet Earth,  is among a number of proposals and existing flags to represent the planets – none of which have been officially adopted.

Fully traditional sewn, part sewn part printed or fully printed

Where flags are fully SEWN with detail, applique is sewn through a layer giving a sewn mirror image on reverse. We use Ministry of Defence spec woven polyester which replaced the traditional wool and linen/cotton mix fibre fabric in and around the 1980s.  The fabric has a matt finish and a strength and durability which lasts longer than the previous natural fibre fabrics. 

Where flags are part-SEWN part-PRINTED, a sewn woven polyester base is stitched and hemmed and the detail (badge, emblem etc.) is printed twice and sewn to each side of the flag around the detail. These are POA, not £0.00 which is the default!

Where flags are fully PRINTED, the format is single layer, printed through with mirror image on reverse. 

All our quality printed flags are made using durable knit polyester fabric and PLEASE NOTE this is NOT to same as what other retailers describe as 'economy' flag fabric (roughly translating to cheap and nasty and not likely to last more than a few days) .
