Description (see definition): A small chain of islands which extends 2.5 mi in a NE-SW direction, lying 2 mi SW of Welch Island in the E part of Holme Bay. The islands were mapped by Norwegian cartographers from air photos taken by the Lars Christensen Expedition, 1936-37, and the name Flatoyholmane (the flat island islets) was applied to the group at the S end of the chain. Following surveys by the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE), ANCA recommended in 1958 that the descriptive name Flat Islands be applied for the entire group.
