The Dream Flag Project started small in 2003 at The Agnes Irwin School, a K-12 school for girls in Bryn Mawr, PA. Students were taught about dream poetry by Langston Hughes and created their own dream poems. Student poems were printed and decorated on 8 ½ x 11 inch pieces of cloth with the entire collection of student poems connected on a dream flag clothesline. The premise for dream flags is modeled after Nepalese Buddhist prayer flags with the ultimate goal to share positive hopes and dreams with the world. With more than 70,000 dream flag K-12 student participants in 38 US states and 18 countries including Australia, Belize, Canada, China, Costa Rica, France, Honduras, Japan, Kenya, Morocco, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Rwanda, Romania, Russia, South Africa, and Zambia, the Dream Flag Project is catching on in many schools.
