Flag of Fiji

At the first glance at the flag of Fiji, it is evident that this island nation used to be under British rule. The flag has been adopted after gaining independence in 1970 and it consists of a pale blue leaf and a miniature of Union Jack flag in the upper left field. In addition, the flag bears national coat of arms where a yellow lion holding a cocoa bean and St. George's Cross are depicted. The resulting fields bear pictures of sugarcane, coconut palm, white turtledove carrying an olive branch in its beak, and bunch of bananas. These commodities are typical of Fiji since it was not imported on the islands. The light blue color of the leaf should remind the Pacific Ocean which surrounds Fiji.
