Pojagi Unity Flags

Commissioned by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture Location: Seattle Center, 2018

Unlike traditional flags, these flags have no allegiance or nationality. They wave a call for unity and to celebrate diversity. They are a reminder that when diverse parts come together like a patchwork, beautiful things can happen. These flags are inspired by Pojagi, Korean wrapping cloths made from scrap silk. Each patch and stitch on the pojagi is a prayer of good will meant to protect good luck and enfold the gift. The wish for passers-by is that they are carried in good will and a spirit of unity.
