Sharon Davson, World Flag designer, artist and long-time advocate for greater harmony for all inhabitants of our world, has incorporated the flag in her art.  How and where will you display it?

The design is deliberately simple and geometric for easy reproduction; a child with crayons can draw it.

The World Flag contains essential elements common to all cultural philosophies and religions.  The red vertical represents spirit, fire and sun; (the hot, vertical energy of the time in which we are living).  This crosses the blue horizontal of calm, water and moon; (the more gentle era of our past cultures).  The white background represents the clarity and purity of air, translucence and transcendence.  Along the bottom is the Earth, illustrated by the 5 spiritual colours for humans as described in ultra-ancient times; blue, red, white, yellow and purple.

Australia's Parliament House to the Middle East

With a backdrop of her art, Australian Prime Minister the Honourable Tony Abbott was presented with a World Flag by Sharon Davson on 23 April 2014.  This occasion launched the Middle East Peace Run and was celebrated in the House of Representatives Alcove, Parliament House, Canberra.

The images below include events soon afterwards, with Davson in Israel in May 2014.  Davson's Sponsorship in the Middle East Peace Run with Pat Farmer ensured significant events took place in Israel.  The artist also visited Jordan.  She plans retuning to both of these countries, as well as many others in the Middle East.

.

In 2014 and 2015, World Flags are going to the Middle East for inclusion in the Davson ~ Connecting Friends cultural exchange events; and God willing, to other events and venues across the world for decades to come.  

'Congratulations on efforts to promote recognition of the World Flag. It is such a basic requirement to enable all races and religions to unite.' 
Robin Greatbatch, Singapore, April 2014.

2004 - Davson designs the World Flag

With a desire to foster greater harmony, Davson designed this flag for ALL who inhabit our Earth, including other species with which we share our global environment.  The design was deliberately simple and geometric for easy reproduction under any circumstances, and with the ease for children to draw it.

Two original prototypes for this World Flag were hand-made in 2004.

Davson has since modified the design slightly.
