Margot from South Africa

Margot, South Africa, 16 years old: “The first time I read about the competition, I thought: here is my chance to do something I love and design the flag for one of the most beautiful places, the Arctic, and also to contribute to the global community. I never expected to receive an email stating that my flag is one of the 18 designs chosen to go to the North Pole. I am so honoured, excited, thankful and proud to be part of this amazing experience! The focal point of my design, the globe, to me symbolizes global community the best,because the whole world and all the people on this beautiful planet of ours are joined.”
