Designers: Yara Said with The Refugee Nation for Amnesty International Graphics category
The Refugee Nation flag
Created to mark the participation of the first ever refugee team in the 2016 Olympics.
Yara’s simple and striking design became an act of hope, and an emblem for refugee athletes who marched to a new anthem, watched by millions globally. This design story is also about one woman’s experience transcending her situation and creating an enduring symbol in the face of an intolerable global crisis.
