Flag of Papua New Guinea

The flag of Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 is considered one of the most beautiful and most spectacular ones. It is divided diagonally into two triangular sections - black bottom one and red top one. At the bottom part, five stars depicting the Southern Cross constellation following flags of Australia and New Zealand are placed. The upper red part of the flag is dominated by a golden silhouette of a bird of paradise in flight, which is the national symbol of the country. The red, yellow and black colors have been used by the indigenous population for decorating objects of folk art for a long time. The flag has been adopted in 1971 - that is, four years before the official independence was proclaimed.
