TAKEBACKTHEFLAG

 

Flag Day 14 June  2005 
Athens,
Greece

A Virtual Gallery
inspired by the American flag
and the many facets of patriotism
it symbolizes

  • because the flag is being used and abused to support an ever narrowing partisan agenda

  • because patriotism is not a monopoly
    of the right wing

  • because dissent is an American value

The contributors to this project take back the flag as a symbol for all of us.
Our works:
  • support an inclusive definition of Patriotism
  • expose the wrongs we feel the flag has been used 
    to cover up
  • highlight the positive qualities that the flag represents to us
  • are personal visions and solely represent the views of their creators
