The flag of the R/V Skalugsuak was created by GEERG artist-in-residence, Jean-Louis Courteau.
The shark is a slightly modified version of the GEERG logo which represents both the Greenland shark and sharks in general. The Eye, since the days of Ancient Egypt, is the symbol of choice to represent consciousness, research, knowledge and study. The colour blue is unmistakably associated with water and the sea, and with "things going well."
Mr. Courteau also donated Stop the Killing that is available in poster form in order to raise funds for our research vessel.
