The original flag these examples are based on was made by Lady Jane Franklin. The installation is part of the current Franklin: Death in the Ice exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. I’ve been taken with the flag since I first stumbled across it in their collections database a couple of years ago.
