The International Indigenous Unity Flag is important to help create unity, world peace and awareness about the hardships that Indigenous People are facing all around the world, such as the destruction of the lands and waters. The flag represents all indigenous people and how we must come together as one; uniting to protect Mother Earth, our cultures and way of life. All plants, animals, the air we breathe, the water we drink and humans are in a circle of life!
Representation of the unity flag:
Feather represents leadership “just one being”. The dots around the circles represent chiefs, elders, and people. The bigger circles represent unity amongst the culture. The biggest circle that the big circles make represents complete unity on our diverse planet.
The Green colour represents Mother Earth as the first creation followed by plants, animals and then human kind. The four colours represent humans, in a circle of life. It is within the fourth circle that human beings were created represented by the four primary colours. Each culture has a wisdom and knowledge that compliments the whole of humanity.
Each race carries a gift to the world. If the world is to remain in balance, the gifts of each race must be seen as valid and given the right under creator to reach its full potential.
~In Native American teachings, the plants were here first; then came the birds and the animals…the human spirits who were from spirits who were willing to share themselves so the humans could be physical and be the keepers of Mother Earth. We are considered as being much younger than the other spirits. That also means we have much yet to learn from the plants about taking care of our health; from the animals about survival; and from the birds about our…spirit freedom…~
~Medicine of the Cherokee~
