Abstract: The flavor asymmetry of the nucleon sea is discussed in an unquenched quarkmodel for baryons in which the effects of quark-antiquark pairs u anti-u, danti-d and s anti-s are taken into account in an explicit form. The inclusionof q anti-q pairs leads automatically to an excess of anti-d over anti-u quarksin the proton, in agreement with experimental data.
