Description and discussion of the flag

(Romanian version)

This Romanian humanitarian flag is taken from a defunct website. There is info about the purpose of the flag. No word about the flag itself.
Dov Gutterman, 1 January 1999

This is not a Romanian flag -- this rendering just happened to have Romanian writing on it. If I recall correctly, it is an international campaign for unity of mankind and they decided to make one different flag per language. Some unity, huh?
Jorge Candeias, 29 May 1999

English is the original/main version, as the whole of the website shows. While lacking a clear byline, the URL suggests an organization of sorts named Lifestream (or Life Stream), and the flag itself, or the campaign to hoist it (even if virtually on one's website), goes under the slogan "Peace is Possible," while terming this design the Flag of Humanity.

It is a golden yellow 2:3 flag cloth charged on its center with a “chubby” red heart, itself charged with a white disc and this in turn containing an inscribed red five-pointed regular star upright. Above and below this emblem, two lines of text varying according with language — the English version reads "One Humanity ¶ United in Spirit" and the Romanian version reads "O Singura Umanitate ¶ Unita in Spirit" (should be "O Singură Umanitate ¶ Uniți în Spirit", with proper diacritics and no typo; "singură" means "single", making this version “stronger” than the English original).

There are apparently nine versions (English, Norwegian, French, Spanish, Dutch, German, Portuguese, Romanian, and Italian) — none of these survives in the archived copies.

The flag image shown on the website is an animated GIF of the flag flying — a synthetic image, not real-world footage: It may be that this design never saw the cloth.
