City of Sammamish to Display Companion Flags on Flag Day, Monday June 14, 2010

The Companion Flag, a flag representing all that human beings have in common and flown directly below (as a ‘companion’ to) the other flags of the world, will be featured at the Sammamish Commons Gallery Exhibit starting June 14, 2010.  The brainchild of Sammamish resident Scott Wyatt, the Companion Flag has been adopted by schools, universities, businesses and individuals in 16 different countries around the world. 

The Companion Flag display is part of an exhibit sponsored by the Sammamish Arts Commission entitled "In Celebration of the Flag". The exhibit will start with a reception on Flag Day, Monday June 14, 2010 from 6-8 pm where you can meet Scott Wyatt and view the flags. The exhibit will continue at Sammamish City Hall through the summer.
