Flags have become the most widely used symbol of a country or organization today. It seems that the presence of a flag gives the needed prestige to the group especially when it is recognizable to people. And so numerous groups have created their own flags in order to flaunt that our organization exists and together we stand for our shared beliefs and ideals. The purpose of the flag remains to be the same through time, to serve as a symbol of the beliefs of those it embodies as well as becoming a binding factor to those who believe in it.
But among the number of flags that we see fluttering in the streets, one flag will always be dominant, our country flag. This particular flag will always be visible in any area because these represent our history and the ideals that our forefathers have fought and died for and what we believe in. We should always take pride whenever we see our country flag because this reminds us that we are a free people and nobody should ever take that freedom away from us. But of course like us, people from other countries share the same sentiment with us; that is why we ought to respect their flags as well. There are over 100 widely known world flags today including not only country flags but other famous organizations as well. Since most of us have not memorized these flags, it is best if we simply appreciate every flag that we see to avoid hurting somebody.
Flags and Globalization
The advent of the Internet and the fast and reliable communication system had brought the countries of the world closer. We have become a community of nationís, all governments had made the isolationist theoryís of yesteryears a thing of the past. In fact major barriers in trade, in scientific research and medical breakthroughs are all within reach to the citizen of the world. We are now over 6 billion people around the globe, we must help each other attain food sufficiency, in order for us to survive.
The convening of these forces is what we call globalization, to provide ways towards lasting peace, to appease hunger and serve justice where it is most needed. Take the case of the spread of AIDS in Africa, it has become a world concern. Therefore from the United States to Europe and Asia, everybody contributed to the concerted effort of stopping the deadly epidemic on its tracks. In the fields are a conglomeration of facilities, separated only from each other by the different world flags auspiciously displayed. From the U.S. to Japan, to Russia, to Germany, to China their flags rose in unison to serve a common purpose.
Since all are geared towards helping each other, it does not come as a surprise if New Zealand has a food processing company in Vietnam, or a British conglomerate in Cambodia and probably a computer facility in China. The same way that Japanese products are already popular to the consumers in the United States. All foreign countries doing business in other countries are represented by their national flags, proof that indeed we have become one global city.
The future beacons, and everybody will now be assured of his share of his inheritance from our Maker.
