Alexander Island Flag - Antarctica

Alexander Island Flag - Antarctica

The flag of Alexander Island is based upon the flag of the Russian Navy because it was discovered by a Russian Citizen - Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen in 1821. However Bellingshausen was born in what is now modern day Estonia, thus the colour black is added on the left and right sides.
