Flag with Whale Bone Supports

1965 - The flag pole is supported by 4 large whale ribs found around the base and dating from the days of the Norwegian whaling station on the site. By the end of the winter, the flag would be worn and tattered and significantly shorter. It was then given to one of the winterers by lottery.
