Tzav Pius is an organization that tries to avoid civil war in Israel. They started acting in 1996 after Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination. Their "flag Campaign" shows the two blue triangles that compose the Star of David on the Israeli flag while they are apart, and they have a film in which the two blue triangles get back to their original places.
The graphic concept is so similar to my thaumatrope that many people asked me whether I helped make this film. In fact I contacted the Tzav Pius offices in Jerusalem and offered they use my film about the thaumatrope but they said they didn't find it useful for their campaign.
