Jorge Pomar exploits the notion of a national flag in his works, both the popular ones as well as the flags most of us are not even aware of.

The concept behind this work is the construction of a big structure to reach the sun, like
a ladder you use at home to fix a lamp in the ceiling. The element common to all the flags is the sun, sometimes pictured as a circle or a round geometric shape.

Some of the flags are popular but few people might realize what the flag of Kiribati country is. The countries represented are 25 in total: Bangladesh, Japan, Uruguay, Rwanda, Kiribati, Argentina, Macedonia, Antigua and Barbuda, Niger, Taiwan, Namibia, Malawi, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Nepal Australian Aboriginal Flag, Ecuador, Biafra, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, Malaysia, Poland and the flag of Tibet as the murals culmination point.
