Matthew Williamson

This flag does not have colors but a real human value based in the “Centre de la Mémoire” of the martyr village of Oradour-sur-Glane. Everything around it – sky, clouds, ruins and visitors – reflected in it like in a mirror. Human continuous reflection about history, it is the universal rallying of those who want peace.

(Translated from french)
