Flag for the Antarctic Circle

The flag of the Antarctic Circle features the natural colours found on its most populous biped - the penguin.  It is quartered into two designs - an orange, red, and white checker portion and a solid black portion.  In the lower left hand quadrant is the constellation Octans the Star Compass. Octans is the most southern celestial constellation and home to the Southern Star which is noted with eight points.
