Does anyone have any earthly idea why the United Nations and the Flat Earth Society have identical matching logos? Everyone says the Flat Earth Society is a joke, but don't you find this a bit unusual?

Flat Earth Society:




United Nations:




Flat Earth map:




Round earth map

Yeah I thought it needed it's own thread because it must be some sort of Joke. Or maybe they just have really Big Balls.

The use of a correct (i.e. Flat Earth) map by the United Nations is evidence that at least some world governments and transnational institutions are aware that spherical fundamentalism is in fact a vast deception.

Once again, you stuck to the appearances and are biased by FET.

If you put yourself a second in the shoes or a RE'ers, you would come with a very simple explaination.

Well, since you've been in the shoes or a RE'ers, could you show us your explaination?

If the logo had been designed with a globe, a lot of the countries couldn't be seen on the flag.

Depends on how it would have been designed.

I'd like to see an example of this!

You'd like to see an example of something depending on how the U.N. logo would have been designed? Are you sure you can't come up with one by yourself?
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Put it in relation with what canofcoke said and maybe you'll come with a different answer.

No. it is a projection of a RE map.

I do.  It's a convenient design for showing most of the continents on a circular logo.  Simple enough.

I don't think that the UN logo is meant to depict the FE model.  It's a polar projection of the RE.  You can tell from the distortion of the continents in the outer parts of the map.

I think the UN logo is a depiction of FE, you can tell because it's the same map.

obviously because all nations of the world are corrupt, 
The FES is a part of the conspiracy!

The UN logo is a polar projection of the RE map. Why a flat projection? Because 3D Flags do not exist currently. And why a polar projection? Because is focused in a neutral area (The North Pole) and reduces the distinctions between zones (Every continent is located around a central point)

Sigh.  Those are the same.

This has been explained countless times. For those who still don't understand, observe what happens when we use the so-called "Flat Earth" map as a texture for a sphere in a 3D modelling application like 3DS Max (click for full-size):

Actually, it looks like my point has already kind of been explained in this thread:

http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=54320.0

I don't want to get into an argument about plagiarism or whatever that thread is about, but the current FE map does appear to be based off of a polar projection RE map.  Someone ought to tinker around with the map to fix the RE distortions.

I completely agree: the flat projection of a sphere (RE map) cannot be the same as the flat projection of a flat surface (FE map). It's basic geometry.

Many of the organizations within the UN also have telling logos/flags as well as the days they choose to use as flagships (Earth Day for example.)    The logo itself was designed by an ex-military architect.  The leaves were lifted from designs of another architect that worked closely with this sort of stuff (Nuremburg, etc).  Of course, this could be found likely with a google search.

I'm going to ask the girlfriend, an architect, if she has any source material on any of these designers or designs.  Its unlikely as its not the sort of thing down her alley, but I'll post back if something interesting turns up.

As far as the popular flat earth maps that circulate, they are wildly inaccurate but serve an important purpose: helping visualize the basic historical theory around the flat earth.

Apparently Corbusier did the UN building so I'm going to dig up appropriate sources out of our library to examine said design.

When are we going to see an accurate FE map?

That certainly raises the question of whether an accurate map can exist in general, or in this specific case.

The question though of course is silly: you might as well have asked Napolean when the personal computer would be engineered.  If we could know when such a map could exist, we likely could create it now.
