The Ecology symbol was created by Ron Cobb in 1969. The symbol is created by taking the letters "e" and "o", from the words "environment" and "organism". Look magazine incorporated the symbol into an image of a flag in their April 21, 1970 issue. The flag was patterned after the United States flag with thirteen stripes alternating green and white with the green standing for unspoiled land and the white for clean air.
Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). 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.
