Mascot

HOT is our trackable flag and is also the basis of our event logo. The flag is the Greater London flag and as you can see appears in most of our team photos. To say the flag is well travelled is an understatement. Its first trip was to Croatia, quickly followed by Bosnia, Montenegro and Albania. After that it seems to have developed a wanderlust and has been diving with sharks in Belize and got close to the North Pole (This was when it said hello to the most Northerly bust of Lenin in the World). So far it has travelled over 175000 miles and it still has the urge to travel further. It will be there to greet you at the London Calling 2021 event so don’t forget to say hello to it and discover it.
