Flags of Trash


I've dived in several different countries: USA, Bonaire, Mexico, Granada, Honduras, Thailand, and Bali. Wherever I go, plastic trash is an issue. For a while, I've wanted to make flags of these various places to highlight the problems of trash, especially its effects on the oceans.

In January, my spouse and I bought a small condo on Bonaire. It came furnished and most of the art was hideous. Along the front dive, four flags are flown: Bonaire, The Netherlands, United States, and Canada.

I wanted to make new art for the bedroom and decided to mimic the entrance by making these four flags.

They didn't go in the bedroom, though. My spouse suggested I hang them above the doors that lead from the patio to the living room. That's where they have been placed.

By the way, I don't plan to dive in The Netherlands, nor Canada. I prefer the warm blue waters of tropical climates.
