#Myislandflag is a creative project commissioned by the British Council for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Imagine your very own micro-nation, where you can define the values, cultures and traditions. What would your flag look like? And what would it represent?
The flag is inspired by Chinese 5 elements ( Wu xing). Based on this system we build a relationship and interaction with nature.
The colour of each elements combined with its texture represent aspects of nature and how we generate our culture on our mother earth.
The symbol in the middle is the negative space come from Freedom (自由）in Chinese. With freedom we can create a whole new system that balance with this 5 elements that nature give us for free.
Basically everyone can create freely and love our nature is all this flag about.
