Climate Warming Stripes Flag
✍️ Our Design: Climatologist Ed Hawkins designed the "Warming Stripes" (also known as "Climate Stripes") as a visualization of our planet's warming over time. The progression from blue (cooler) to red (warmer) stripes portrays the long-term increase of average global temperature from 1850 (hoist side of the flag) to 2018 (fly edge). This graph is a beautiful way to display a terrifying reality and one that we're proud to print on our flags.
🧵 This flag is made of a durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D) with two grommets on the hoist edge. In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
🖨↩️We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through.
🏳️ Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
🌏 Created and shipped in the most Earth-conscious way we can.
I saw this flag and thought it perfect for a friend who has had a long running dedication to environmental causes. They loved it! In particular the fact that not everyone may know what it is, so it can start a conversation, or create a bond between those who already know.
