Boo Boo Village - So That Other's May Party Flag

The Boo Boo Village flag was recently sent to me by a reader.  The flag is a play on a child's choice word for a physical injury - boo boo.  This flag belongs to a first aid group that helps people at social events. 

This flag was made by Nurse Obi Wan. Since this group operates under a First Aid setting, the Republic star is replaced by a Red Cross. Boo Boo Bear has a copyright tag to keep Warner Bros a little happier.  The bear is a symbol of strength, healing and family, which is what the medical teams strive for when serving festival communities. The motto is "So That Others May Party" which makes up the acronym S.T.O.M.P.

All the medics camp around the venue.  Allowing Boo Boo Village to be close at hand and support the participants and each other.  Generally they have their own cooking area, to dismis worries about any unwanted chemicals.  Boo Boo Village is a very real community of healing and hope.  So if you get a boo boo at a festival, look for the Boo Boo Village flag waving in the distance, they will help you! 

This blog post was co-written by me and Nurse Obi Wan.  If you have any flag ideas please send it to me!  I'll post it when I get the chance.
