To help stop the ongoing conflict happening in Ukraine, Bungie has released a blog post and given Destiny 2 players the option to show their solidarity for people in need through the Destiny 2 Ukraine emblem. Titled the “Cоняшник emblem” gamers can redeem this free Destiny 2 emblem through the store and equip it immediately. The look for the symbol is inspired by Ukraine’s coat of arms and a banner based on Ukraine’s national flower. So for gamers who want to support the courage of the Ukrainian people, here is how to redeem the Ukraine Sunflower Emblem.
How to download the Destiny 2 Ukraine Emblem
To start, sign in to players’ Destiny 2 account and enter the code redemption page on Bungie.net/redeem. Then, enter the code JVGVNTGGG into the box below. After that, click the gold redeem button, and a message should pop up that the emblem has been added to fans’ Flair Collections. Once it’s collected, relaunch the game and go into the Flair tab in Collections. Next, click the “General” button under the flair tab, and the Destiny 2 Ukraine Emblem should be towards the bottom marked with a yellow trident.
Aside from the Ukraine Sunflower emblem, Bungie has made other moves to show the companies support. Just recently, Bungie has ceased trading in Russia and Belarus alongside other partner companies such as Nintendo. This means that players in these regions can still play Destiny 2 if they have already purchased it. However, they can not buy new content or Silver in-game currency. On top of that, Bungie has donated 100% of the proceeds from Game2Give charity to humanitarian efforts in Ukraine, which amassed $120,000.
Bungie also matches employee donations to any U.S.-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization, with a maximum limit set to $800. The company stated that it mainly supports two prominent relief organizations: Direct Relief and International Rescue Committee. Direct Relief gives emergency response packets to Ukraine’s vulnerable communities, and International Rescue Committee helps house Ukrainian refugees.
Bungie ends the post by saying that there is more that both the company and everyone, in general, can do to show support outside of the Destiny 2 Ukraine Emblem. Bungie encourages everyone to keep helping in whatever way they can and even offers three different charitable organizations: Razom, Sunflower for Peace, and the International Committee of the Red Cross. Hopefully, more companies will follow Bungie’s example and give opportunities for both themselves and the people in different ways to help Ukraine.
Destiny 2 is available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
