Before coming to Antarctica I discussed the idea of logos and flags with my students. It seemed fitting that a design made by students should be on a flag that could be flown at the base camp in Bull Pass. Many outstanding designs were made because our students are so creative. One was settled on and my able wife, Kathy, made the flags and T-shirts with the designs on them. Not only is the team logo represented but also a Town of Yarmouth flag was created which Kathy made using the design from metal emblem. These flags will be flown in the base camp for the duration of our project and presented to the high school and the town on my return.
