Flags Engineered for Space: Venus
Venusian clouds are flooded with droplets of sulfuric acid and the planet’s thick atmosphere weighs down so heavily that the pressure on the surface is 90 times that on earth.
Beneath a deep orange sky a runaway greenhouse gas effect traps the sun’s heat, sending temperatures soaring to a blistering 880F (470°C) and making Venus the hottest planet in the solar system.
Here 80% of the sun-light is blocked and the winds reach up to 220mph (360km/hr.). The lower atmosphere is so hot that sulfuric acid rain evaporates before it reaches the ground. The Soviet Union’s Venera 13 survived the intense heat and crushing pressure of Venus’ surface for more than two hours. Engineers from several nations are currently studying methods to extend the life of robotic spacecraft in the extreme environment.
The answer is using a heat resistant material which can withstand the harsh heat and winds of Venus. Venus' solid surface is a volcanic landscape covered with extensive plains featuring high volcanic mountains and vast ridged plateaus. Therefore longevity of your flag cannot be guaranteed.
