Description of the flag

Not a real flag, but a virtual flag which is depicted on a UN stamp at the opening of the Olympics at http://www.un.org/cyberschoolbus/gallery/pfp/index.asp.

Some background:
THE UN CYBERSCHOOLBUS, in co-operation with the UN Postal Administration and the International Olympic Committee, is pleased to announce the winners of the Peace Flag Project! Students from around the world submitted their vision of a world peace flag. One entry was selected by the judging committee to become an official UN Stamp to represent the International Day of Peace.

The winner was Mateja Prunk, 12 years old, Slovenia, whose flag at http://www.un.org/Pubs/CyberSchoolBus/peaceflag/results/pages/winners/winner1.htm  represents:

The sun and the earth are intertwined, they do not function one without the other. The sun represents optimism and positive energy.

Phil Nelson, 29 July 2000
