African-American Flag is a vexillographic artwork by David Hammons from 1990, combining the colors of the Pan-African flag with the pattern of the flag of the United States to represent African American identity. It was first created for the art exhibition “Black USA” at an Amsterdam museum in 1990, and its first edition was of five flags, which are now in major museum collections. The work’s creation has been seen in the context of the inauguration of David Dinkins as the first African American mayor of New York City, following his 1989 election. Zoom In. Full HD.
