We are multicolored

Via the New York City Tenement Museum website I came across this fun flag creation “kit” so to speak: We are multicolored is an online project that aims to promote awareness around the contemporary immigrant experience. In keeping with the mission of the Tenement Museum, the project takes no position on the definitions of flags, but rather encourages the expression of multiple perspectives.

Users are asked three simple questions about countries they associate themselves with — and then the fun begins! A simple interactive interface guides users to create their own artistically inspired flags. You can also search the colors to learn meanings, or to discover which countries contain certain shapes or symbols in their flags. There is a fantastic, ever-changing mosaic of new flags that appear on the website — an ongoing multicolored display of heritage, nationality and travel dreams.
