Flag of Micronesia

Flag of Micronesia

The flag of the Federated States of Micronesia, which has been adopted on 10 November 1979, consists of a pale blue leaf on which four white five-pointed stars are placed. Since Micronesia is a grouping of islands located in the Pacific Ocean, bright blue background represents the ocean that surrounds the islands. The four main islands (and federated states) called Chuuk, Pohnpei, Yap and Kusrae are represented through the stars. Originally, the flag of Micronesia was carrying six stars, but after the departure of the Marshall Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands from the Federation two stars were removed. Flags of similar character are typical of number of states in Oceania.
