23 Flag 2015

Daily Flag 23 on Wednesday, December 23 hosted at 62 Leuty by The Former Leutyians. 36”x32” Original design, printed cotton fabric, machine sewn onto cotton backing. “The Human Genome.” The 23 pairs of chromosomes in the human genome comprise the complete set of genetic instructions that define all human beings. Chromosomes are the basic building blocks of life, containing genes made of DNA. This flag represents the human genome as a karyotype, which groups chromosomes by shape and structure. Human beings have about 25,000 genes. The combinations of these genes are what make us unique individuals. Too often we focus on our differences, but in terms of DNA sequence, every person is 99.5% similar to all other humans. We certainly share our most basic needs for air, water, food, shelter, and love. Remembering what we all share helps us to see ourselves in others and that inspires our compassion and desire to give.
