Cultures connect and come together as one. No matter who you are, universally we can come together. No matter who you are or what you look like, we can all care for the people around us. We also want to show that everyone can be happy and loved.
Our main symbols are the colors, which all have different inherent meanings. For example, the red represents bravery and standing up for your beliefs. Another large symbol is the Chilean flower, which symbolizes happiness and abundance. We also added wings to represent coming out of your shell and turning into your true self. The samurai helmet comes from the Japanese culture and the black and white pattern are mummy bandages from Egypt. Another symbol are the colors red, white, and blue. They stand for all different flags together like the USA, France, Chile, and the Netherlands.
The main message behind our superhero is togetherness and acceptance, which are issues in today’s society. We wanted to tackle the issue head on by creating this superhero.

Our motto is education for all. We want everyone to have education. We showed education by adding math symbols on her cape, a picture of a book, and a big red apple. The apple in the superhero's hand represents education, as when on the first day of school kids would bring in an apple for the teacher.
The sun represents all Hispanic and Latino people. The United Kingdom flag represents coming together. The dragon represents power and the universe. The mom on her head represents luck. All the blue on the poster represents all of the people. The warm colors represent family and love. Other colors represent certain nationalities such as British, Vietnamese, Dutch, Russian, and Chinese.
The superhero is a girl because most superheroes in the comics are men and a woman superhero can show that diversity and equality matters.
Everyone should be able to get a good education.

While brainstorming the design of our superhero, we were trying to come up with ways to make him as diverse as possible. We wanted to show that he represented all cultures and races. Finally, we settled on giving our hero three heads, have him wear symbols of different cultures, and have our motto be "Express Yourself. We believe that racial stereotypes have divided people when, really, we are all the same.
The main Lego figure is wearing a shamrock representing the Irish and a jade necklace representing the Chinese. The location is the Australian desert for Australia. We chose three heads and many different symbols to show diversity. Doing this tells the reader or spectator that everyone is different-you can be who you choose to be.

Our superhero is floating in the middle of a ball that is surrounded by fire. The most prominent focus of the poster is the flame. The flame is emblematic of a strong psyche and individuality. Feeding your flame could also mean feeding your ambition. However, the flame is subjective and can have many other meanings based on the viewer’s perspective.
The symbols include lotus buns that represent peace and affection. The flowing water represents peace because it reflects the peacefulness of a calm river. We included wings for ancient Greece; they stand for kindness and strength. We added a yin yang for balance. The gecko symbolizes health, the regeneration of limbs. The Philippine star represents transformation.
The hero is dwarfed by the flame, symbolizing that the flame—drive, grit, creativity—is bigger and much greater than themself. The hero’s gender is ambiguous, meaning anyone can find their flame. The message is about being an individual.
