About the Vegan flag

The vegan flag was designed by a network group of graphic designers and activists from several countries. The group was opened by Gad Hakimi, a vegan activist and designer from Israel. Intending to be a civil flag to represent veganism. The flag consists of three blue and green triangles forming the letter V, the first letter in the word "vegan".

Originally, some members of the group suggested that animals should be featured on the flag, with red colours featuring prominently to symbolise the blood of slaughtered animals. However, the group eventually chose to make the flag about human-animal equality, not about animals themselves. Inspired by the LGBT rainbow flag, the flag was created in hopes of uniting animal rights organisations and activists. Originally, some members of the group suggested that animals should be featured on the flag, with red colours featuring prominently to symbolise the blood of slaughtered animals. However, the group eventually chose to make the flag about human-animal equality, not about animals themselves. The colours white, green, and blue were chosen to represent the natural habitats of animals: sky, land, and sea. The letter V stands for Vegan and is an inverted pyramid intended to symbolise the ability to do the impossible.
