Make a flag that commemorates resilience

Commemorate what gets you through life’s trying times by joining Between You and Me artist Christine Wong Yap’s How I Keep Looking Up: Flags of Resilience project. Using shapes, colors, and symbols, design a flag that represents a time when you faced a challenge and overcame it—or honors the people, places, experiences, or activities that strengthened your resilience. Learn more about the project on our Social STUDIO website, where you can find instructions and examples.
