Flag Designed for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Smithson Bicentennial

Smithsonian Archives - History Div
The first Smithsonian flag was designed in 1955.

Bureau flags were designed for all the Smithsonian bureaus for the celebration of the bicentennial of James Smithson's birth. The thirteen individual banners were all similar except for the design of the canton in the upper left corner. All have a blue field with gold fringe on the upper, lower, and right sides. In the center is a gold sun burst with sixteen alternating straight and wavy rays representing the "increase and diffusion of knowledge." The canton for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute features is yellow with a red bird and red fish.

Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute - Galeta Marine Laboratory - Student Orientation Video

Smithsonian Education
The Galeta Marine Laboratory is located on the Caribbean coast of Panama in the Province of Colon. It was established in 1964. The main priority is research, but we also value communicating the results of this research to non-scientific audiences in order to increase awareness and understanding of the natural world. Our Educational Program offers guided visits to students, tourists and the general public. In these visits, we explain the unique ecosystems and wildlife of Galeta and emphasize the importance of conserving the environment we share. In spanish with english subtitles.
