Flag for the future competition finalists

The Flag for the Future art contest inspired youth from around the world to create a flag that would symbolise peace, hope and global community, as a statement of the commitment of millions of people who have signed a petition to protect the Arctic from oil drilling and overfishing. Designs poured in from young people in more than 50 countries around the world. The 18 finalists alone submitted flag designs from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Visit savethearctic.org to get involved.

The WINNER: Sarah, Malaysia, 13-year-old Girl Guide: “As a member of Girl Guides Association of Malaysia, I feel very happy and honoured to be part of the effort to Save the Arctic and the historic flag ceremony. We need to protect the Arctic because it is the home of many indigenous peoples and many animal species. It should be declared a global sanctuary. I found out about the competition during my Environmental Journey in India visit last December at Sangam, World Centre of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. After looking at a photo of the two brave Girl Guides taken in the Arctic, I decided to do my little part by participating and supporting the campaign to Save the Arctic. This is a golden opportunity for me to send the message of hope and peace to the rest of the world. We can only save the Arctic for the future generations if we are united in peace and harmony."
