The flag of Antarctica, known as the “True South” flag, designed by Evan Townsend in 2018, uses a palette of navy and white. These colors symbolize the extended periods of daylight and darkness the continent experiences due to its extreme latitude. At the flag’s center, a white peak rises from a snowy base, reminiscent of the Antarctic landscape’s distinctive mountains and ice formations. This peak casts a shadow forming a compass arrow pointing south, symbolizing the spirit of exploration associated with Antarctica. This imagery is encased within a diamond, representing hopes for ongoing peace, discovery, and cooperation in the region. The design aims to foster a sense of stewardship and highlight Antarctica’s environmental challenges.
