Chariklo Flag - 10199 Dwarf Planet
The flag of Chariklo uses the colours green, black and white. Chariklo 10199 is the King of Centaurs, but the most unique aspect is that it is has its own ring system.
Discovered February 15, 1997 it is one of the gems of the outer dwarf planets. It orbits in between Saturn and Uranus, crossing over nearer to Uranus. In the speculative picture below it can be seen flying by Uranus.
The cycle of this minor planet is about 63 years old. We are thus in Chariklo Age I, and its the second age of Chariklo II in the year 2060. By that time a bot will certainly visit this amazing gem of the outer solar system.
Astrologically it represent the full emergence of the internet and networking of the world as single virtual city.
