have until March 14th to cast your vote.

Bizhan's "Artist Statement":
The black flag has been used to embody the idea of global citizenship
since the 1880's. It represents the absence of a flag, therefore, the
absence of nations and of borders.

The addition of the circle is intended - like many tribal cultures - to
illustrate a decentralized social structure. The circle doubles as a
globe without any natural distinctions or borders.

The flag is asymmetrical allowing for it to be displayed in such a way
that it implies times of distress or of peace.

The simple flag design allows for easy reproduction. Anybody can easily
draw a rectangle with an offset circle in it. Symbols easy to reproduce
ensure longevity and have a viral effect. One need not rely on
expensive reproduction methods to create their own flag or scrawl it's
image on a wall.
