What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


The Global Flag: Many Tribes: One People, One Planet

The above picture is based on an actual computer enhanced image of the World taken by NASA satellites. NASA's observatory team developed the original imagery which was colour filtered by the author of 12-12-12. For the record, NASA are not associated with 12-12-12 but allow non commercial use of their publicly available images.

Extract of Andronicos "The Great's" directive relating to His new Global Flag (from section 12.60 of the 12-12-12 book):

I direct the new Global Flag be used forthwith. It should never be placed at a lower level than other flags, or placed on the same flag pole. Treat it with respect. Never incorporate the Global Flag image as part of a national one or visa versa.

Using, wearing or flying the new Global Flag does not mean you love your tribe (country) less. Neither does it indicate that you agree with every one of my opinions, directives or instructions. It means you consider ALL human beings equal.

Technical specifications for artwork and legal copyright matters can be found in Appendix G.

Am I allowed to produce Global Flag boxer shorts?

Producing Global Flags

If you are a factory wishing to commercially use the flag for merchandise such as real flags, mugs, jewellery, badges, T-shirts etc, you are hereby given a licence in return for 12% of the proceeds being given monthly to ANY non political NON religious registered charity in your country which spends less than 12% of its yearly income on administration. Download the artwork free of charge and register on www.12-12-12.org/globalflag.

If you are an individual there are no constraints other than to direct you to undertake three things: Don't wear the emblem on your right hand or on your forehead as a hat. Treat it with at least the same respect as you would your national flag. Never incorporate the Global Flag with any nationalistic symbol.

Be proud of your tribe, be proud of your culture, but more than this: be proud to be part of the global family of the human race.

It will take an average person 12 hours to read and understand the contents of this website and listen to 'The Speech'. Is one hour a day for 12 days too long? Why don't you email the www.12-12-12.org link to 12 of your friends and discuss their opinions in 12 days time? Maybe the 7th person in your email chain can break the secret code and the 12th person, may hold the key to World Peace. Are you or someone in your family the 7th or 12th person?
