The state flag symbolizes the state, its independence, its autonomy and unity. Flags can also be assigned to other country attributes, such as language, even if they are used in other countries. Flags are often used to demonstrate ownership of an area. The flag is a national symbol representing the citizens of a country. Even "slightly" modified, it is still recognizable as a whole image or emblem. "National symbols used within a nation as well as in its relations with the outside world catalyze the formation of a national identity and serve to sustain it."

On Diplomacy was created as part of the Polish-Israeli project "Aesthetics & Bias".
