Flag for the West Pole
The West Pole flag is composed of the colours: navy blue, light blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. It represents the setting sun and points Westward, in the modern map sense.
The West Pole is defined as following: the highest point on the Equator. Consequently the nation of Ecuador is home to the West Pole. And it is a pole you can visit on Mt. Cayambe. This mountain is the highest point on the Equator and is always covered in snow, just like the North Pole and South Pole.
Cayambe as the West Pole make sense since it has three legs of logic to rest upon. First, it is always covered in snow, as any self-respecting pole point should be. Second, it is midway between the North Pole and South Pole, on the Equator. And finally, it is in the Western Hemisphere.
