Where in the world is the ub-cool flag

Dear Explorer,

The world is your oyster!  You’ve heard that one before, eh? Well, it definitely is our motto at ub-cool. We are conquering the world one country at a time with our flag!
The world is truly a small place now that we have the ease of air transport. Long gone are the days of sailing weeks across the rough-gut-wrenching seas, watching your suitcases (or, trunks!) slide across the room and almost squash your legs, just to get from one continent to another. Now, you can do that in 12 hours or less.

Where in the World is the ub-cool Flag?

Come along with us on our journey as the ub-cool team and friends carry our flag across the globe. We will update this page with new additions from the coolest places on Earth!
If you want to be part of the journey, email us for a copy of our flag and then submit your photo and we will add it here!
Spread the word and check back to see all the new cool places we have been!
