Rick Murphy's Europa

A flag may symbolize a nation, but it cannot describe it.

Rick Murphy continues his ground-breaking adaptation of the flags of the world with his second collection, Europa.  Mixing the traditional structure and color of a flag with splashes of landmark and landscape, Rick imagines what flags could be if they attempted to better paint a nation.

In Europa, Rick digs into the flags of Europe.  Europe houses the largest thermal cave system (Hungary), produces over 50% of the world’s supply of cork (Portugal), and one of its nations has more Olympians than any other nation (the United Kingdom). 

In addition to being home of some of the great civilizations in history, Europe contains countless breath-taking wonders, including the Eiffel Tower (France), the canals of Venice (Italy), the Athenian Acropolis (Greece), and Saint Basil’s Cathedral (Russia).

Each country has something that makes it unique. But you have to look behind its flag in order to see it.  Come on down and start collecting Europa (or check out his prior collection, Américas).
