Delaware, OH.., October 2007 -- Since its introduction in 1970, the Flag of Earth, which flies at SETI League headquarters, has graced SETI locations around the world. It symbolizes the fact that SETI is carried out on behalf of humankind as a whole. The individual people, organizations, and nations involved are immaterial, since any signal received will belong to all of humanity, and represent Earth's entry into the Galactic community. This lovely symbol can be seen online, and is explained at www.setileague.org/general/whatflag.htm. The yellow part of the flag is the sun, the blue circle symbolizes the Earth, and the small white circle represents the Moon. Sadly, when James Cadle, creator of the Flag of Earth, passed away in 2004, his family elected not to continue manufacturing, distributing, and promoting the Flag. They have been unavailable since then. The Flag of Earth design had been placed in the public domain by James before he passed away. The web site flagofearth.com has for some time been dormant.

What Is the Flag of Earth?


Its anthem is the wind in her trees and the waves of her seas.
