Illustration of green-colored American flag with lighter green 'ecology' symbol in place of the 50 state stars. White background.
Ron Cobb created this logo by combing the letter “e” and the letter “o”; to combine earth and the environment with wholeness and unity. It was first published in 1969, a year before the first Earth Day. It was later put on a green version of the American flag and called the Ecology Flag.
