Refugee Nation Flag
‘The Refugee Flag is inspired on the colours of the life vests. Orange and black, in solidarity with all these brave souls who had crossed sea, lands and borders in search of peace and security in a new country. For people who hope to find a better future, to find home again.’ – Yara Said, Syrian refugee artist who designed the Refugee Flag
Makers Unite is gathering thousands of life vests used by migrants crossing into Greece and hiring newcomers themselves to create refugee support flags. Each flag serves as a powerful symbol of hope and solidarity with refugees around the world. Proceeds go directly to refugees employment.
Makers Unite and The Refugee Nation have teamed up to create new job opportunities for refugees and unite people around the world with a powerful symbol of support.
Makers Unite is hiring refugees to create flags out of life vests worn by refugees themselves who have traveled to Greece. This initiative generates jobs for those who have arrived in Europe and provide them with the necessary means to start a new life. Through this process, all of the hardships experienced while wearing the life vests are stripped away and what remains is a symbol of hope and solidarity with refugees around the world.
With the Refugee Nation Flag we honour the thousands of displaced people around the world who have bravely escaped war, persecution or natural disasters, by continuing our work to help them attain the rights they deserve.
