This is the flag which the Congress of African People proposes for the unification of the Continent and the Diaspora. It presupposes the Virtues of Maat as the fundamental and unifying value system which has the greatest potential of being and becoming a Unifying Ideology, grounded in our history and tradition of values, ethics and principles serving as the basis of Civil Society, not laws as Europe dictates.
- understood that Maat is the energy that animates both the visible and invisible worlds; (Obenga, p. 224)
- would “participate fully in the cosmic order of Maat”; (Obenga, p. 606)
- would know and abidingly respect the omnipresent command to “take care, in their behavior and conduct, not to soil the environment (of our existence) with any kind of impurity;” (Obenga, p. 223)
- respected and reflected the “whole range of essential moral, philosophical and esthetic qualities” embodied in Maat in all things – agriculture and architecture, education and child-rearing, public works projects, music, dance, rituals, all works and crafts. All things! (Obenga, p. 606-607)
