The Flag of Humanity has two sets of hands, an adult's hands reaching down to a child's hands. The adult hands represent the passing of the Earth to the child. The hands are shown in silhouette to represent all the skin colors of the people on Earth. According to the flag's designer, Bruce Benson, the message of the flag is that adults should be mindful in what they pass on to their children. The flag's design was conceived in 2008 by Bensen, but completed by a design team in Asheville, North Carolina, and put into production in 2015.
The Flag of Humanity organization, although started in the US, hopes to spread their movement worldwide. Their Human race mantra is: "No matter a person's religion, or lack thereof; no matter a person's skin color, nationality or politics - these differences are as nothing compared to what we have in common... we are human."
