Flags of the World: Antarctica Flag

The Antarctica flag is unique among the world’s flags because in a sense, it’s not really a flag at all. Instead, this image was approved by the Antarctic Treaty Organization and is being used as an informal ensign of the continent. Because Antarctica is not actually a country, and it’s not governed by any authority, it cannot have an official flag.

The current informal ensign of Antarctica flag depicts the white shape of this content in a sea of blue. This flag is Graham Bartram’s design and was planted on the continent in 2002. However, other designs are also being considered. Whitney Smith’s design uses orange instead of blue since it makes the image more visible. It depicts the letter A cradled in two hands.

It’s also worth noting that the various territories of Antarctica use their own flags.
