Ceremonial South Pole Marker

Ceremonial South Pole Marker

This is the ceremonial marker for the South Pole. It's 100 to 200 meters from the location of the true geographic South Pole. It is also much more flamboyant - so it has become the iconic South Pole marker, even if it's not quite in the right spot.
