One Flag In Space seeks to promote the " Blue Marble " as a symbol of international unity in space exploration. It is a symbol that anyone, anywhere in the world can relate to, regardless of nationality, ethnic origin or religious beliefs.
The " Blue Marble ", the first complete picture of Earth taken from space by humans in 1972, fits this universally appealing symbol in a way that an abstract design will never capture.
Human explorers, national spaceagencies, and private companies venturing in crewed or robotic vehicles in and beyond low Earth orbit act as ambassadors of planet Earth. Displaying the “ Blue Marble ” is a neutral altruistic act of deep meaning.
Placed on the shoulder pads of human explorers, or prominently displayed on spacebound hardware, it sends a global message that space exploration is a unifying human endeavor undertaken to benefit all.
