This post is about Antarctica  There is a present no flag for the continent. Although it does have nine territories eight of which use flags. These are:Happy New Year everybody. I apologise I haven't updated sooner but at present I am very very busy. But here are some designs I made before Christmas. I apologise for the big space above I don't know why that is.

Now There is a flag of the Antartic Treaty :
 File:Flag of the Antarctic Treaty.svg
This incorperates a map of the continent but itself is not a flag of Antarctica but the nations (both with territorial claims and none territorial claims) that have agreed to protect it.

I was thinking the above territories could use a collective flag similar way Europe uses the EU flag.
It features the Earth design but with a lighter blue and the 'A' logo with a half globe and hands from the flag designed by Whitney Smith . And a star for each territory.

Flags that I have designed  for the territories that don't have flags are below.
Peter I Island,  Norway flag with a light blue field.

Queen Maud Land. Light Blue Scandinavian cross on white, set in a dark blue Scandinavian cross on white. 

Australian Antarctic Territory, Australia flag with light blue background on which the letters 'ATA' are occupying the space normally occupied by the Commonwealth star which has been moved to the fly. 

Marie Bryd Land, Antartic flag design in hoist with a single star. Light blue field with a single white stripe. As this is unclaimed a representative of each territory should be on a governing council to meet when matters regarding this region arise. 

Flags in this unless stated otherwise are not my designs
