Antarctica is an amazing place, filled with fascinating forms of marine life, mountains of ice, and vast polar deserts. It is also a place of peace and scientific Discovery because of the Antarctic Treaty which was ratified on December, 1st 1959. Continuing in this spirit of international cooperation, UK Polar Network, in conjunction with APECS and Our Spaces, once again invites educators and their students from around the world to express their own knowledge, curiosity and amazement about this incredible frozen continent in the form of Antarctica Flags and Books.

UK Polar Network, APECS and Our Spaces have partnered again to offer the chance for students to see their flags displayed at research camps in Antarctica! We would like to emphasise that submissions to us can only be up to 5 flags per school or classroom–if you would like to submit your flags to us, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
