Play for Peace!
Today we have a very special project to share. Studio Baklazanas was selected to take part in the international project Flags of Peace: top designers from every country design their own take on how the peace flag should be visualized. The results will be exhibited in the city of The Hague in the Netherlands during the international day of peace on 21 September.
We are especially honoured to be a part of this project, alongside legendary international designers such as Bond, Eike König, Beetroot, Tarek Atrissi, Hey Studio, Milton Glaser, Mario Fuentes and many others. And we are extremely proud to be representing Lithuania!
Flags of Peace project aims to gather a flag design from every nation in the world. Through contributions from both established and young talented designers, artists and other creatives it creates a visual dialogue around peace and its symbolism. Together the flags present a global spectrum of ideas on peace, each highlighting particular relationships and views towards the topic.
About our design:
The title of our flag is Harmonia mundi.
We drew inspiration for this design from the words of Hans Christian Andersen: 'Where words fail, music speaks.'
Music is a universal language understood by everyone. Transcending all cultural and social boundaries, music connects and speaks to us beyond the constraints of language, age, race or any differences. Communication is crucial for understanding, and understanding is the prerequisite for peace."
