Mercury Flag, the Planet

Flag of Mercury
first planet next to the sun

This is the flag of planet Mercury, currently the smallest and closest planet to the sun. In many ways it qualifies as moon, from a Jovian point of view.

The colours of this flag are black, silver, red, and purple. Silver represents the element Mercury while red and purple represent the beginning and ending colours of our visible spectrum.

A view from Mercury

The black icon is a combined symbol from the West and East for Mercury. In the West Mercury is a liquid metal and planet, coincidentally in East the planet designated as Mercury used the symbol of water or liquid.
