Our lonely hut is near the Adelie Penguin breeding colony at Cape Royds, Antarctica. Many distinguished visitors come to see the penguins and learn about Antarctica throughout the season. If your class would like to design and make a penguin flag for us to fly at the hut we will take a picture of it, sign it and return it to your school. We also position a flag in front of the PenguinCam, in order to know how strong the wind is blowing. Use the following guidelines to help you create your design.
Flags must be mailed to us by Dec 15, 2012, or they will not reach us in time to be flown.
Size: Please make the flag between 12 x 18 inches, and 3 x 4 feet.
Design: Create a picture about penguins or Antarctica. Incorporate your school's logo or name if you wish.
Material: Any fabric is fine, remember the winds in Antarctica are fierce, nylon works best. Please add a sleeve (big enough for three large fingers) or grommets so we can attach the flag to our pole. If you attach anything to the flag it must be securely sewn, glued items fall off and blow away. Please no glitter or decals
You can see a picture of your flag flying at the research station everyday. Go to our home page: www.penguinscience.com and click on the penguin cam.
