The theme of this project at Ellebjerg School in Copenhagen was flags and identity. We explored how people use flags to communicate and identify themselves. We spoke at length about flags that signal anything from sexuel orientation to pirates and even the royal flags seen in the navy and on castles.
We talked about nationality and the fact that many of the students came from mixed backgrounds. Inspired by this we created remix flags, combining the Danish flag with various others. In a separate exercise the students made up their own imaginary country and created flag designs for them.
