The Coolest Flag on Earth

Antarctica is a continent that has no countries. Many countries have settlements there, but the residents are rarely permanent at the science stations. But so many countries have planted a flag on Antarctica without taking ownership, and they all fly flags to show where they are from. So the people of Antarctica love flags, and have pretty much always wanted to have a flag for Antarctica itself. Believe it or not, the first flag specifically designed for Antarctica came about because of a video game! CGP Grey tells us how Antarctica got a flag in 1929, 1997, and in 2018. The 2018 flag, called the "True South" flag, is expected to be permanent. (via Laughing Squid)
