Welcome to the Authentic Earth Flag Web site where you can buy the Authentic Earth Flag and join in with like-minded individuals from all over the world who are gathering to discuss and implement strategies for increasing Earth Awareness.
In order to facilitate this growing conversation we present the Earth Aware Platform of Earth Aware Products and Services for open use. Your Earth Aware Experience begins with an indepth education on the History of Earth Day and the Earth Flag and continues with the Earth Flag Foundation, the Earth Awareness Initiative, the Earth Trustee Initiative and the Missions to Earth Initiative. Please understand that the proceeds from the purchase of every Authentic Earth Flag are used to support all the Earth Aware Products and Services on the Earth Aware Platform. You will be impacting lives for the better even if all you ever do is to buy and fly an Authentic Earth Flag. We hope you do more, of course, and we will be here with you every step of the way.
The Blue Marble Blog is the information arm of the Earth Aware Platform wherein you will find engaging content about the State of the Earth.
The Earth Flag Foundation is the action arm of the Earth Aware Platform. You can learn about and join Missions to Earth and learn about and become an Earth Trustee.
The History of Earth Day, the Earth Flag and John McConnell is a must education for anyone serious about becoming more Earth Aware. Knowledge is power.
Peace, Justice, Care of Earth
Earth Awareness in Action
FEATURE: Earth Aware Activist - World Wildlife Fund
For 50 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature.
The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF's unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
These things are not just “nice to have”. . . they are “need to haves.” They are the things that make it possible for us to live. And so, to ensure our very survival, they must be kept safe. It’s a big job. And no one person or organization can do it alone.
Together, we can achieve WWF’s mission to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.
Together, in partnership with foundations, governments, businesses, communities, individuals and our more than six million members, we can conserve many of the world’s most ecologically important regions.
"Conservation endures as a living discipline because it is inhabited by a magnificent collection of people. Only by working together can we create solutions to the most vexing problems we face.”
-Carter Roberts, President & CEO

FEATURE: Earth Aware Activist - Survival International
We are Survival, the global movement for tribal peoples’ rights.
We’re the only organization that champions tribal peoples around the world. We help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.
Tribal peoples have developed ways of life that are largely self-sufficient and extraordinarily diverse. Many of the world’s staple crops and drugs used in Western medicine originate with them, and have saved millions of lives. Even so, tribal peoples are portrayed as backward and primitive simply because their communal ways are different. Industrialized societies subject them to genocidal violence, slavery and racism so they can steal their lands, resources and labor in the name of ‘progress’ and ‘civilization’.
Our work is preventing the annihilation of tribal peoples. We give them a platform to speak to the world. We investigate atrocities and present evidence to the United Nations and other international forums. We support legal representation. We fund medical and self-help projects. We educate, research, campaign, lobby and protest. And we won’t give up until we all have a world where tribal peoples are respected and their human rights protected.
"We depend on you. We need your money, energy and enthusiasm to help us fight one of the most urgent and horrific humanitarian crises of our time."
Thank you Survival International. Authentic Earth Flag salutes you as a prime example of an Earth Trustee Organization supporting the Earth Trustee Agenda.
To our many thousands of visitors we say please visit this wonderful website and join this wonderful storied organization that is helping to preserve the rights and history of Earth's indigenous peoples. The future of civilization cannot be built on a void where our history used to be. We must have context to ensure the survival of a rich and robust culture that preserves our many origins and traditions.
Recently, Our Earth Aware Friend Bernie Meyer traveled with his Authentic Earth Flag to India where he portrayed Gandhi at the International Youth Peace Festival in Chandigarh. He was a leader in a parade of 50 national representatives bearing their national flags. Bernie proudly flew The Authentic Earth Flag. The Youth Peace Festival was just one of seven places where he participated, the rest being schools and universities. Ghandi has a special place in our hearts here at The Authentic Earth Flag and we are sure he would approve! Thanks Bernie, Mother Earth is proud of you and so are we!
