Hundertwasser created another design for a peace flag for the Holy Land, based on the fact that there are many Christians among the Palestine population. This flag does not make use of the iconography of the star of David and the half-moon, and instead uses the colours green and blue exclusively. The blue stands for sky and water, as well as for the spirit of infinity. Green is the colour of vegetation, of fertile earth and of hope. Just as blue and green are united in this flag, it calls for tolerance and reconciliation.
