Description

Flags are incredibly effective symbols in uniting people and inspiring change, yet what exactly makes a well-designed flag? This week on the My Modern Met Top Artist Podcast, we interview the team behind "True South", Antarctica's first flag. True South's designer Evan Townsend, vexillologist Michael Green, and arctic researcher Celas Marie-Sainte team up to discuss what makes the flag a remarkable design and unifying symbol for Antarctica's preservation. Evan talks about the incredible community he's seen form around True South, and Michael chimes in with why the flag's unconventional design made it the obvious choice for the continent. Plus, we'll dive into your listener questions as Celas shares why it may be best to avoid arctic tourism.
