About The Flag for Hope
The Flag for Hope Promotes Unity, Honor, and Peace for All Americans
The Flag for Hope is a National Treasure.
It is a huge 9’x5′ American Flag formed by the hand and finger impressions of more than 4,000 Americans representing every race, every culture, every background. The blue field and red and white stripes were created by more than 500 veterans, hundreds of police, fire and rescue, numerous Olympians and notable sports figures, business leaders, community leaders, pioneers in medicine and science, and wonderful everyday American patriots. The oldest participant was 104, the youngest was just three days old. The 50 Stars on The Flag for Hope were personally painted by 50 Iconic Americans, chosen for both their individual achievements and their exceptional service to others.
As we traveled more than 300,000 miles criss-crossing the country, we were inspired by the positivity, hope and patriotism that exists all over America. The Flag symbolizes thousands of Americans holding hands without conflict or hatred. We are one country and one people. The Flag for Hope is not about the politics of the day. It is a solemn reminder that, as a nation, we must elevate our behavior toward one another. We must honor our flag and the freedoms it represents. Now, more than ever, we must unite to bring peace and prosperity for all Americans.
The Flag for Hope is a reminder that Freedom is not free. Many have sacrificed for the privileges that we all have today. This Flag signifies appreciation and gratitude for those individuals who serve in our communities like teachers, police, fire, doctors and nurses. It calls us to remember all Americans who have made the ultimate sacrifice at the hands of both foreign and domestic enemy attacks. If an American is harmed ANYWHERE, we all suffer and mourn.
The team is led by U.S. Army veteran Marcos Antonio. This epic mission was started at the Indianapolis 500 on May 23, 2015. More than 3,700 American hand and finger impressions were placed on a giant canvas to create the United States of America National Flag. The Flag for Hope traveled to more than 200 cities and 500 locations. Each participant placed their impression on the flag in either red, white, or blue paint.
The 50 stars on the flag were personally painted by 50 Iconic Americans that have achieved greatness in their fields and have dedicated themselves to serving others. These individuals have inspired, empowered, and encouraged their fellow citizens through their actions as pioneers, role models, and leaders in our society. They come from all backgrounds and embody the essence of the American spirit.
The Flag for Hope will be donated to a national museum for all Americans to appreciate for generations to come.
