About the Society's Flag The National Geographic flag features three bands in blue, brown, and green, representing sky, earth, and sea. It was designed in 1903 by Elsie Grosvenor, the wife of then-editor Gilbert H. Grosvenor, who wanted something easily identified from afar. The first flag went on assignment with the 1903 Ziegler Polar Expedition to the Arctic and continues to accompany National Geographic Explorers around the world.
