Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Ab­dul­lah Al Thani who be­came the first Qatari to con­quer Mount Ever­est last year, planted the first Qatari flag on the South Pole last month.

To com­mem­o­rate Qatar Na­tional Day, the young ROTA Am­bas­sador skied for two weeks to reach the South Pole and raise the coun­try's flag there. He is quoted as say­ing in a state­ment, “I am ex­tremely proud to be the first Qatari to raise the flag of Qatar on the South Pole. Very few peo­ple have been priv­i­leged to visit the South Pole. This mile­stone, I hope, will con­tinue to in­spire young peo­ple in Qatar as we cel­e­brate our beloved Na­tional Day.”
