The University of Kansas hosted the tour of the Flag for Hope on March 6, 2016. Flag for Hope is a project designed by U.S. Army veteran Marcos Antonio. The goal is to collect approximately 3,000 to 4,000 American hand and finger impressions on a 9×5 canvas to create the flag of the United States of America. The flag will travel to 150 cities and roughly 300 to 400 locations in the United States. Upon completion, the flag will be highlighted at the Smithsonian Institute and other national museums.
Anderson-Crain Principal, Graham Crain, collaborated with Marcos and his traveling partner, Don Goff, to organize the site visit in Kansas. The University of Kansas Men’s Basketball team and coaches participated in the event. Coach Bill Self is one of the 50 stars on the flag.
