Every year Explorers Club members launch new research expeditions around the world, thus continuing the early goals laid down by the Club's founders in 1904. The Explorers Club flag represents a history of courage and accomplishment and has been carried on hundreds of expeditions since 1918. Flag expeditions fulfill a fundamental part of the Club's mission: To engage in scientific exploration and share the results.
New flag expeditions are launched throughout the year. View a list of approved flag expeditions, as our members carry the flag into new terrain and uncharted waters.
Any member of the Club approved to carry the flag on an expedition is required upon return to issue, in hardcopy, an official Flag Report. These reports fulfill a fundamental part of the Club’s mission, to engage in scientific exploration and share the results.
Throughout the history of the Club, our members have shared the results of their flag expeditions upon return from the field. Now for the first time explorers.org will bring you communications from the field, while an expedition is in progress. COMING SOON.
Any member in good standing may apply for the privilege of carrying the Explorers Club flag on an expedition intended to further the cause of exploration and field science. The flag has been carried on hundreds of expeditions since 1918: to both poles, to the highest peaks of the greatest mountain ranges, to the depths of the ocean, and to outer space.
