Tourism flag

This amusing, but unofficial tourism flag has become very visible along many of the more popular British Arctic Territory (BAT) resort and beach fronts in recent years. The design can be traced back to a well-known surf and swim-wear shop located near the boardwalk and amusement park in the coastal vacation and resort city of Brr. It should be pointed out here that this flag has absolutely nothing to do with the official BAT Tourist Bureau (BATTB), or the local Chamber of Commerce of the City of Brr.

The Tourism Flag has also recently been reported being displayed at several of the more popular BAT alpine skiing resorts and clubs, and was carried in the opening ceremonies of the Arctic Winter games by members of the BAT cross country ski team.

Your flag is correct, but shown in reverse image. The hoist runs right up the snowbear's back.

The BAT Tourist Bureau (BATTB) has announced the beginning of their new "Visit the Bat" incentive program and the unveiling of the new BATTB "Fun in the Artic Sun" flag. Beginning on April 1, 2023, special tourist discounts * will be available to visitors at the British Arctic Territory Resort located in the beautiful beach town of Brr. Attractions in the area include a visit to the new British Arctic Territory Arctic Aardvark Reserve (BATAAR), where visitors can get to see the endangered Arctic Aardvark up close. The Arctic Aardvark has been facing extinction because of illegal poaching due to the demands of the fashionable practice of wearing Aardvark lined hats but with the opening of the BATAAR they are now making a slow comeback in their new protective home.

* Visitors taking advantage of the resort discounts will have to attend a sales presentation during their stay learning about the Igloo Village Vacation Home Share Program offered by the BAT Tourist Bureau.
