Flag of Adelaide Island, Antarctica

Flag of Adelaide Island

Adelaide Island was awoken to our awareness in 1832 by a British Expedition. Although Europeans claimed to discover the worlds of America and Australia, this is incorrect. However Antarctica and its major islands were indeed discovered. Adelaide is officially a new world founded by the British.


Thus this flag pays homage the founders national identity John Biscoe. The design is exactly the same as the UK Union Flag. But there is a slight alteration in colours. The white spaces and Scottish elements have been reversed. The colour white represents snow and the blue represents the Southern Seas.
