In 1912 Nobu Shirase led the first Japanese exploration team to successfully reach the Antarctic. The blue flag was hoisted on the main mast of the "Kainanmaru" the vessel which was used on the landmark expedition. The flag is called "Southern Cross Flag" and its four stars joined together in a diamond shape which express ideas of firm unity and reliance.
