This flag by Aleks Danko was created as a part of the public art project 'On top of the world: Flags for Melbourne series' that was presented as a part of the 'Melbourne Now' exhibition in 2013-2014. 41 flags designed by artists were displayed on flagpoles across the City of Melbourne and concurrently display in the Great Hall at NGV International. The project was curated by Stewart Russell of Spacecraft Studios. This flag was displayed at Queens College at the University of Melbourne.
"Chatter references the sound of a city cultural hub, opinions, ideas, a meeting of people. The chattering of classes." - Aleks Danko, 2013
