Apple says the band's "blooming flowers and vibrant colors" represent "Pan-Africanism and symbolize generations working together to address injustice and dismantle systemic barriers." The band's pin is etched with "Truth, Power, Solidarity."

An accompanying Black Unity watch face will be available for the Apple Watch with watchOS 10.3, which will be released next week, according to Apple. Users can choose between a single-bloom or full-bloom arrangement for the watch face, and when they raise their wrist, the "flowers begin to bloom with vibrant hues."

I may actually buy this one. Reminds me of early De La Soul album art.

Gorgeous design.
Usually like symmetrical patterns, but the irregularity here makes for a striking look.


The accompanying watch faces are so pretty, too!
