The flag of the British Antarctic Territory was granted in 1963, a year after the British Antarctic Territory was created. Previously the Territory was a part of the Falkland Islands Dependencies and used the same flag.
The flag is a white ensign with the Union Flag in the canton, defaced with the coat of arms of the British Antarctic Territory. The flag flies over the British research stations in the Territory. Vessels of the British Antarctic Survey use a blue ensign defaced with the shield from the coat of arms. A flag is available for the Commissioner of the British Antarctic Territory, a Union Flag defaced with the coat of arms.
It is the only Overseas British Territory to use the white ensign.
