Dublin City Council Flag

Flag Design
Awareness Campaign

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
— George Bernard Shaw

In response to COVID-19, Dublin City Council partnered with NCAD Bureau+ to undertake an initiative capturing the essence of the pandemic's transformative impact. Tasked with creating a suite of flags to be displayed alongside the Liffey River, the aim was to embody the spirit of resilience and unity.

The design of my flag revolves around the concept of social circles and bubbles, symbolizing the importance of adhering to social distancing measures. The flag serves as a poignant reminder to maintain physical distance and practice proper hand hygiene to curb the spread of the virus. Additionally, the inclusion of a small orange circle prompts individuals to prioritize mental well-being during these challenging times. While the colour palette drew inspiration from COVID-19 signage in Ireland, the infusion of warmer tones such as yellow and orange aims to create a more approachable visual.
