About the US Unity Flag
The US Unity Flag was born out the need for a common, inclusive rallying point for those who believe in the notions of equality under the law, strength born out of our differences, inalienable rights, separation of church and state, freedom of speech and religion, and commitments to the concepts of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in ways that are sustainable for a nation to grow and unite.
This flag was born in a time when we, as a country, need to protect our most vulnerable populations, women, people of color, religious minorities, LGBTQ people and Native Americans--and stand united for the greater good.
This flag is a new version of the US Flag (officially modified 27 times but remains unaltered since 1960)--created to represent the diverse fabric that makes the United States so unique and great. Each design element was chosen intentionally and with purpose.
Colors Originally, the red portions signified hardiness and valor; and the white signified purity and innocence; and the blue stood for vigilance, perseverance and justice. The US Unity Flag takes on further meaning for these colors. The Red portions signify our Native American population whose land was taken by the European settlers. The White portions represent the ideal the United States strives for but in actuality have not seen due to structural forms of oppression and systematic racism against minority groups. The white stripes are replaced with a selection of skin tones to signify the diversity of cultures and ethnicities that make up the United States. Six are shown but do not represent the vast number of peoples that are present in the United States.. The blue portion represents our water and our skies – two resources, which need protection now more than ever if life is to be sustained not only in this country, but on this planet we share with the world.
Symbols The fifty stars, that represent the number of states that are a part of the US, are replaced with more than 50 religious symbols. There are more than fifty to signify the vastness of religious experiences in this country. The infinity symbol at the center signifies the understanding that all religious expressions are not represented in the blue field. The US Unity Flag pays homage to the 13 original colonies in the number of stripes still equal 13. The people of the colonies were activists and visionaries by standing up against tyranny of a dictator in the form of a foreign king, and espoused the values, as explained in the American Constitution, that this new born country held dear. Lastly, along the left edge of the flag is the rainbow flag, adopted by the LGBTQ community to express the existence of sexual and gender minorities including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, intersex and gender-nonconforming folks.
