Hey Look, Planet Earth Might Soon Have An International Flag

So, do you think that planet Earth should have its own flag?  It might soon have one!   Oskar Pernefeldt created the planetary flag as a graduation project at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden.  Pernefeldt used the principles of vexillology, the scientific study of flags, to create a meaningful design representing the water and life on our planet. The shade of blue was chosen to stand out against the black of space and the white of a spacesuit, and the interconnected rings form a flower to represent life on Earth and how it is intertwined.

Below is a video about the construction of the International Flag of Planet Earth.  Will we be using this when we go to Mars, who knows!
