Native Flags

Native Flags is a participatory eco-art project created by Xavier Cortada to help rebuild our native ecosystems across the planet one yard at a time. Locally, and across the globe, plants and animals evolved together to create a unique interdependent community of organisms. We depend on this native ecosystem for food, shelter, clean water, and fresh air.
Participate by following these steps:
  1. Purchase a native tree.
  2. Buy or create a project flag
  3. Plant the tree and the flag in your front yard and state “I hereby reclaim this land for nature.”
  4. Upload photo.
  5. Ask your neighbor to do the same.
