We’ve already introduced y’all to #MyEurovisionIdea, #MyEurovisionDance and #MyEurovisionSong. Now we have #MyEurovisionFlag!
DR, the host broadcaster of Eurovision 2014, launched the campaign earlier this week. It calls on ESC fans to make flags out of every day objects and to share them online using the hashtag #MyEurovisionFlag. Into Twin Twin from France? Put a row of blueberries and raspberries on a sheet of white paper et voilà! All of the Eurovision 2014 artists have already created a flag representing their country for their postcards…so this is a natural extension. Love that cohesion!
Instructions for #MyEurovisionFlag
First, choose the flags of the contestants that you will support in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen. Once you have made your vision a reality, take a picture and share it on Instagram or Twitter. But don’t forget to use the hashtag #MyEurovisionFlag or it won’t count!
The most creative flag designs will win DVD’s, merchandise and other cool prizes. So start being creative! You can use any material you want – I’ll give you some ideas. All you need use a piece of white paper and a blue scarf and BOOM you have the Finnish flag. Making creative versions of the flags can be as simple as that!
I’ve also completed a few designs for #MyEurovisionFlag. Let’s have a lookie…
The first #MyEurovisionFlag I did was for Italy. I grow lots of herbs and vegetables, so I thought doing the Italian flag would be easy. I used home grown Italian parsley and tomatoes, and fresh bread that my mother made.
For my second #MyEurovisionFlag I chose Ireland. I thought straightaway to use the Twinings Irish breakfast tea (I love drinking it). Then I chopped some pumpkin and got some white beans to make the Irish flag. It was pretty simple.
It isn’t that hard so I’m sure you can do it too! You can see other #MyEurovisionFlag’s on the official campaign DR JoinUs website by clicking here.
So show your support! Create flag/s of your favourite/s country using anything you like.
