This vintage-look messenger bag shows your dedication to the National Geographic Society’s goals of research, education, conservation, and exploration. A collection of patches show off the Society’s mission and sealadd patches and buttons from your own travels for personalized flair. Slightly larger than a purse, it’s an excellent casual choice for travel or daily use. The strap can be worn across the body for extra safety. Features the Society’s three-color flag on the front and the Society seal on the back, along with leather and brass details. Snap-down closure on the front flap and two inner pockets: one slot pocket and one zippered security pocket.
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.
