Raise the flag for a clean, healthy and plastic-trashfree world.

Every country or nation has a flag - and so does the civil society movement Let's Do It, which has launched World Cleanup Day or several school projects. 

How it works

This flag isn’t just any flag, it’s a global flag, it’s planet earths flag, the flag of our common home, of our beloved global family.

Even you can get a flag and send it on a journey around the globe.

There are four different coloured flags and each has its own meaning:


This flag symbolizes Cleanup Co-Organizers and leaders.


 This flag symbolizes our school project.


This flag symbolizes certified World Cleanup Day communities.


This flag is for everyone and can be purchased here

You are a co-organizer, a school or a representative of a community and want a flag? Then just fill out the form here and apply for one of the flags.


Each year on the 3rd Saturday of September one flag (the initializing ‘Olympic’ flag) will start its journey around the world (like the Olympic flame) initiating the World Cleanup Day for that particular year. The celebration will begin in New Zealand and end in Hawaii. Next to the initializing (Olympic) flag, more flags will be sent on a journey around the world from every participating country.

Before the flag will be sent on a journey a cleanup will take place with the current owner. After the cleanup the flag will be given to the next global family member for the following cleanup.

Since the flags have a microchip attached to them, in the future you can even follow the flags on their journey through the world in your profile by visiting your profile in the www.worldcleanup.org platform – where all the flags you have initiated and forwarded will be saved. You will know every little detail about its adventures and can even see what impact your movement had on our planet.

Fly the flag

Get your crew together and take a group picture with the flag while using it as a flag, banner, poster or cape. If you like you can post the image of your cleanup crew with the hashtag #worldcleanupday and #letsdoitworld. You can also use the flag as a carrying bag for your cleanup utensils or as trash bag for the cleanup. If used for the latter please make sure that it’s clean before sending it forward.

Send it on its journey around the world

Hand over the flag to the next cleanup organizer. > After you get the flag from last cleanup visit your profile on www.worldcleanup.org directly (or create a new profile for you or your organisation – see step 2) 

Follow the flag on its journey

In your profile on the www.worldcleanup.org platform you can see how many flags you have initiated or forwarded. You can also follow each of these flags on their journey through the world on a map and see how many cleanups have taking place with them and where in the world.
