What does it mean to belong? My whole life has been a search for identity. Who am I, where am I from? I was born and raised in one country but my heritage is from another. I am a third culture kid. By definition, we don’t belong anywhere, but we are at home in many places. I have always viewed flags as the ultimate symbol to where my home is. But even though I have many homes and as many flags, not a single one feels representitive to me. In order to belong, I realised I need a flag. My own flag. The flags most present for me when growing up, the Palestinian and the Swedish, became my inspiration in the search of my own symbol. Flags is the result of my search for my home, my identity.
