Learn more about Native Flags and our mission to help restore native habitats for plants and animals in urban areas.

On June 29, 2008, Eco-artist Xavier Cortada planted a green flag at the North Pole to reclaim it for nature.

The project’s conspicuous green flags serve as a catalyst for conversations with neighbors, who will be encouraged to join the effort and help rebuild their native tree canopy one yard at a time.

“Native Flags” is a participatory eco-art project designed to engage local residents in restoring native habitats for plants and animals in urban areas.

Join the global reforestation effort by ordering a Native Flags package and planting a native tree and flag in your front yard.

The Native Flags Packages include a 2 ft. x 3 ft. Native Flag, a pole, a native tree in a 1 or 3 gallon pot, and delivery to your home (in Miami-Dade County).
