This image displays one flag mounted inside of a white frame. The imagery on the flag was created using a digital overlay process to layer images on top of one another. In the center of the composition, the text: 'Barker Built Heavy-Duty Double Bunk' is prominent and appears as a curved arch of letters printed over an image of a metal bunk bed. Behind that image is a photograph of a landscape with a mountain range. At the top of the flag there is smaller text that reads: 'gray powder coat is standard' and 'assembly hardware included.' Layered over this image of the framed flag is a digitally applied text bubble that displays the text: 'Companies such as Mcdonald's, Walmart, Starbucks and Victoria Secret use prison labor, profiting off modern slave labor.'
