They come from different countries. They were raised in different cultures. They speak different languages. But one thing still brings them all together: the will of finding a place to call home.Refugees are united by one hope. And now, they are also united by one flag.
An orange and black flag inspired by the life vests many brothers and sisters had to wear in their search for a safer land to live. An orange and black flag as a symbol of hope and solidarity. An orange and black flag to bring the world together to support refugees. Because they exist. They are millions. And they matter. While this crisis persists, we’ll be on their side.
The flag of the Refugee Nation was designed by the artist Yara Said, a Syrian refugee who found asylum in Amsterdam.
"Black and orange is a symbol of solidarity with all these brave souls that had to wear life- vests to cross the sea to look for safety in a new country. Since I had wear one, I have a personal engagement with these life-vests, and these two colors"
- Yara Said

The anthem was written by the composer Moutaz Arian, a Syrian refugee currently living in Istanbul. Since the refugee crisis is a global issue, Arian decided to create an anthem without words to resonate beyond borders:
"Music is the best language to deliver my message to humanity, which isto love each other, and this language does not require a translation"
- Moutaz Arian
