Flying Rainbow Peace Flags all over Natick, MA, Metrowest & Beyond!
We want Rainbow Peace Flags to be available, free of charge, to anyone who wants one. (Free Flag pick up is in Natick or ask a friend to deliver/send it to you.) Since starting this mission in June we have over 3500 flags flying and we just received a shipment of a limited edition design by Natick artist, Virginia Fitzgerald. The rainbow peace flags continue to spread across Metrowest, flying high above homes, at spiritual institutions, in schools, and at businesses.
We've added the rainbow peace flag magnet, too, so you can take the message on the road. (Magnet is $5 to cover costs.)
And Welcome All door signs, too (download and print or email us and we will send you a higher resolution):
You can participate too! You can get a free flag, door signs (or door sign file for printing, sharing and forwarding) $5 car magnet, and/or donate to the Rainbow Peace Flags Project. Note: You do not need to donate to get a flag or door signs. Supplies last as long as we have the funds.
The Symbolism; The Meaning
The rainbow peace flag is displayed throughout the world as a sign of diversity and inclusiveness. Now more than ever, it is important that we spread our message: To extend kindness and caring across national borders, with love that includes people of all sexualities, genders, abilities, religions, races, ages, and cultures, and to condemn acts of violence and hatred, embracing peaceful dialogue instead.
Let's Make A Statement
On a summer trip to Europe, our friend observed Rainbow Peace Flags abundantly displayed. This wasn't the case in the U.S. And why not? Why would we not want to display a message of peace, solidarity, diversity and inclusion?
Following the Orlando assault, bombing of Istanbul, then Saudi Arabia, during the summer of 2016, we knew more than ever, it was time to spread this important message. Now, in 2017, the need for this message is even greater. 3,000 flags hanging, it's spreading--our message is--and in response to a big problem.
Let's show where we unite; that we embrace each others differences, and how we stand for PEACE!
And let's watch this message fly one flag/magnet/door sign at a time across Natick, MA, to neighboring towns and beyond!
