This image displays one flag mounted inside of a white frame. The imagery on the flag is created using a digital overlay process to place images on top of one another. The background image is a mountain landscape. There is a rectangular section of this layer that shifts the image color into shades of red. Over the top of the entire image is text from an advertisement for a Stearns Wear Spit Sock Hood. In the center of the flag there is an image of a man's head. The man is wearing a transparent white sock hood. Along the upper right, a digitally applied text bubble states: 'The U.S. is only 5% of the world's population yet it has 25% of the world's incarcerated people.'
