Flag of Solomon Islands

Flag of Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands lie in the eastern direction from New Guinea and to the west from the shores of Australia. The flag of the archipelago is composed of blue and green sections, where the fields are separated by a yellow diagonal stripe. In the upper left part of the blue box, a white five-pointed stars are located. The islands have not been colonized until the 19th century, but it eventually came under the British-German domination. In 1920, Australian ruled the islands and Solomon Islands have become independent in 1977. A year after, the current national flag has been adopted. The stars denote five island territories; blue represents the ocean, yellow the local bright sun and green fertile land.
