On Monday, the Pro-Life Flag Project revealed the winning pro-life design, a flag showing a mother’s hands wrapped around a baby’s footprints.
According to Life News:
“With two feet (child), two hands (mother), two stripes, and two main colors, it emphasizes the TWO lives present in a pregnancy and the love the pro-life movement shows to both,” the project website states.
The flag was a project of a large coalition of national, international, state and community pro-life organizations to create a universally recognized, unifying symbol for the pro-life movement.
Brazilian graphic designer Nanda Gasperini, of Sao Paulo, designed the winning flag. Organizers received more than 1,000 flag designs, narrowed them down to six and then allowed the public to vote on a final design.
According to organizers, the white background on the flag represents non-violence and the innocence of the unborn child, while the baby’s feet are based on the iconic Precious Feet pin, a symbol of the pro-life movement for decades. The pink hands surrounding the feet represent the pregnant mother protecting her child, and the heart in between the baby’s feet symbolizes the pro-life movement’s love for both mother and child.
