The flag of the red planet

The only flag I want on mars
Is one free of color, One free of scars.
Freed from ego and vanity
And that state of division twixt you and me.

The only flag to be flown off this planet,
should be one without borders and nations goddamnit.
No reds and no whites and no aquamarines…
No flags of control of any regimes.

No border round the craters,
no passport for the stars.
No colors on the only flag
That should be flown on mars.

Author's Note
I have found that using AI to generate images as a step off writing prompt has been working for me recently. Today I was doing some reading about the history of “The Black Flag” and the thought occured that the only way we will ever successfully colonize other planets is if we leave behind “The Vanity of Nations” once and for all.
