The Sarah Rahbar 'Flags' series is an inventive set from the Iranian-born NYC artist. The majority of Rahbar's innovative ideas come from the contrast of the two very different cultures she's experienced, with the 'Flags' series as no exception.

The star-spangled banner is revamped, restitched and almost entirely transformed numerous times in the Sarah Rahbar 'Flags' series. The result is a work that boasts impeccable textile and layout skill, as well as deep symbolism.

Implications - The use of patriotic imagery in advertisements and branding allows a specific demographic to connect to a company on a personal level. By incorporating political and patriotic imagery into advertising, artists and businesses can secure a relationship with customers based on this emotional connection.
