Flag of Coulman Island, Antarctica

Coulman Island

Although the Japanese were not the first to land on this island, Japan came by it on their first expedition to the Antarctic in 1911.

It was quite an amazing trek for a nation that was living in medieval times technology nearly 60 years earlier. The Japanese team was led by Shirase Nobu and was the first nation to land on King Edward the VII land.

The flag is based on the national flag of Japan.
