The City of Miami Beach invites individuals and organizations to participate in the Native Flag Eco-Art Project in celebration of Earth Day. This project gives participants an opportunity to create a flag that depicts an eco-action they pledge to engage in to support the environment; the participant will then plant their flag in a parade line on the shoreline and proclaim “I hereby reclaim myself for nature.”
Participants are encouraged to partake in one of two ways.
• Day of the event: visit one of our flag making stations hosted by local non-profit volunteers who will supply flag banners, flag posts, and markers to assist participants with creating their flags on the day of the event between noon and 4pm.
• Prior to the event: For those who wish to be more creative or larger groups and organizations who wish to make their flags ahead of time, we have provided some guidelines to help you get started. Must arrive prior to 4pm for the ceremony.
Larger groups and organizations that wish to create their flags at one of the event day flag making stations are encouraged to pre-register their group to ensure adequate supplies are on hand.
Schedule for additional Miami Beach Earth Day planned activities during this event will include a tree planting to commemorate Arbor Day, Rain Barrel /Water Conservation Workshop by Barbara McAdams, and more!
