Creating Peace Flags
Flags provide you with a special way to express some of the most important
wishes of your heart. In words or pictures, you can display positive wishes
for yourself, your family, friends, community, or the world. You may wish
to convey something especially for one person (for example, health, success,
prosperity) or affirm a concept you would like to see manifested in the
world (for example, peace, cooperation, equality, understanding, compassion).
Let your imagination connect to what matters most to you.
(1) Peace flags are made by tearing rather than cutting the fabric. The fabric should be torn into squares of 9 x 9 inches or 12 x 12 inches. Small flags could be 6 x 6 inches.
(2) When you prepare to create your flags, it is important to relax and enter the peacefulness of your heart. From that quiet space, begin to think of the wishes you would most like to send out to the world.
(3) Write or draw your wishes and blessings on the flags using magic markers or fabric paint. Leave a small margin at the top so you can fold the flag over twine.
(4) When you have finished your flags, secure them by folding the top edge of each flag over the twine, and glue, staple or sew the folded edge to the flag. You can hang them in the traditional order of blue, white, red, green and yellow.
