I saw banners for this New Year’s Eve displayed everywhere along Elizabeth Street in Sydney CBD. The banners had a one eyed koala and one eyed tree on it. One of the designs can be seen below.
I don’t know if it was done intentionally, but the all seeing eye symbol seems to have become widespread in popular culture. The question is, why is it present at big events that a lot of people tune into? Even the European Music Awards (EMAs) had an all seeing eye symbol this year.
As many of us know, Sydney happens to have the best New Year’s Eve fireworks display in the world, and there is a theme for the event each year. This year’s theme for New Year’s Eve is called Shine.
According to the creative team behind the theme’s all seeing eye symbol:
The all seeing, ever-sparkling eye symbolises one community and one shared vision to live a harmonious, stimulating, exciting life in a city that allows every individual the opportunity look to the future with optimism… and to Shine.
One community…one shared vision…doesn’t that sound like the principles that tie in closely with a one world government? =P Whatever the intention is, I still find a one eyed koala to be very creepy. >_<
