Maritime Flags are hung on boats to alert and share information from ship to ship. These flags often designate where the ship is from, whether or not its friendly, and can even communicate its cargo. Our workshop poses the question: Wouldn’t it be useful to communicate, from afar, a clear identity or state if you so choose?  Maybe a flag will be the introduction most important to you or maybe it will draw attention from a stereotype. This workshop welcomes people of all ages to invent their own symbols and create flags inspired by International Maritime Flags. All materials will be provided.  

This project is supported, in part, by the Port of Los Angeles through the Community Investment Grant Program.
