Swedenborg Society

Flag 2013

This proposal for a new flag to be flown on the building of the Swedenborg Society in Bloomsbury reached the final shortlist of two designs. The background of the flag is an image of the sky above Swedenborg House, taken from Google Streetview: a random sampling of the heavens at a specific time in a specific place. Superimposed onto this is an image of Emmanuel Swedenborg's 1714 proposal for a flying machine, executed in light reflective thread.
The fugitive image of the flying machine emerges from the clouds when struck by sunlight or artificial light.
