A Greenpeace ship superimposes a design made from the flags of all 193 United Nation member countries on an ice floe North of the Arctic Circle. The flags, arranged in the shape of a heart, are suspended a few centimeters above the ice's surface by wires. The activist organization conceived the project as an appeal to the United Nations General Assembly to take action to protect the Arctic.
