About

Square

The Climate Flag  project can be picked up by anyone, anywhere. It’s a tool you can use to seed conversation, reflection and action on climate change.

Flags are made by the community, for the community. One flag is one voice and each voice will be joined to the next in a chorus.

Climate Flags can fly in public spaces around towns where they’re made. They can also be raised at rallies and events. See our gallery for ideas on how to use your flags.

This grass-roots project is not affiliated with any organisation. Click here to seed your community Climate Flag project.

Background

The Climate Flag project was founded by a diverse group of residents from Castlemaine and surrounds, who are deeply concerned that communities, businesses and governments are not doing enough to make the rapid shift needed for a climate-safe future. Flags are now being made by community groups, friends, families and individuals around Australia. Everyone is welcome to be involved in the project and to become an organiser.
