CREATING LOCAL AND COMMUNITY FLAGS FOR THE FLAG INSTITUTE
A flag, designed sensitively to represent the inclusive life of an area, gives the members of evolving communities a focus for a real sense of pride and unity. It becomes a symbol of the combined identity of the area: something to point to, and celebrate, without fear that the cultural diversity of the place is lost in a homogenising identity. Properly done, the flag symbolises a place with a special kind of freedom.
