Flag Ceremony

ceremonial pole sunsetSaturday, we took down the flags around the ceremonial pole for winter except the Australian one, which I believe marks the location of the geographic S Pole during the winter of 2000 when Rodney Marks died here.

The flags are taken down because the long winter would be rough on them, and there’s not much point in having a display that would be seen so infrequently in the dark. Flags were then raffled off among the winter crew, before sunset dinner.
