The new Earth Flag is printed and it’s beautiful!
The 25th Anniversary Earth Flag demonstrates the collective resolve of Canadians to reduce their carbon footprint. From Earth Day 2015 until Earth Day 2016, Earth Day Canada encouraged Canadians to pledge their commitment to “Make Earth Day Every Day and Reduce my Carbon Footprint”.
Created using people’s signatures on all kinds of canvases – paper, T-shirts, posters, even superhero capes – mailed in from schools, businesses and communities across Canada, alongside digital signatures through our website, the 25th Anniversary Earth Flag measures 30 x 50 feet in size and features original artwork by renowned Canadian artist Charles Pachter. It includes signatures from Al Gore, Robert Bateman, Elizabeth May and even Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!
The Earth Flag made its official debut on April 15, 2016 at the Green Living Show in Toronto.
Created in 1992, the first Earth Flag had 500,000 signatures portraying the commitment of Canadians to protect the planet. Then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was the final signatory to the Flag before it went to Rio for the Earth Summit where the first international climate accord was signed.
