Raised on International Days and Weeks of the United Nations
A One Sky Flag is a symbol of peace and freedom offering many multifaceted associations
Sky Flag, 1996/1997
One Sky Flags are showing pictures of the boundless sky from above the territories on earth.
They may question the idea of one’s nationality by giving an impulse to think about identity.
Where is home? Where or what is Heimat, homeland ? those were the thoughts of some viewers of the art flag.
This One Sky Flag shows a photo of the sky taken by the artist YLS above the antipode of Germany, in Australia.
One Sky Flag was hoisted next to the flags of the EU and the UN. One Sky Flag was travelling Germany, flying at representative places in 10 German cities on International Days of the UN: World Press Freedom Day, International Disarmament Day, International Week of Peace, World Environment Day or the Human Rights Day mediating an unusual aspect of affiliation.
As usual with many flag raising ceremonies, raising the Sky Flag up the flag pole was accentuated with live music at each occasion.
A Sky Flag was flying at the Dome in Cologne, at the Roemer Frankfurt, at Grabbeplatz Duesseldorf, Odeonsplatz Munich, at Lombard Brigde Hamburg, at Bruehlsche Terrace close to Semper Opera in Dresden, at the City Hall in Naumburg/ Saale, at the City Hall in Wuppertal, at the City Hall in Bonn when being the Capital of Germany.
