The flag was designed by Israeli designer Gad V Hakimi, graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, with the help of some activists and designers who helped to polish the final design, all members of the Facebook group Vegan Flag International.
Hakimi created the vegan flag with the belief that “every great movement in history has a flag,” and “As vegans it is our duty to protect all the animals wherever they are: land, sea and air. ”
The 3 colors were chosen that represent these values:
Green– land, life, nature, energy, harmony
White– air, light, goodness, success, beginning
Blue– sea, sky, faith, truth, heaven
The five rules for creating a flag were followed: simplicity; limited colors; no text; meaningful symbolism; and distinctive.
