Flag of Tonga

The flag of a Pacific state Tonga 🇹🇴 is one of the older flags, it dates from 1863. For its excessive resemblance to the flag of the Red Cross, it has been slightly modified in 1863. The current flag is composed of a red leaf and white rectangle in the upper left corner. In the white rectangle, a red isosceles rectangular cross is placed. The cross is supposed to symbolize the Christian faith of Tonga´s inhabitants and red color stands for the Jesus Christ´s blood. Until 1970, Tonga was under British rule, and then the archipelago has become a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Currently, Tonga benefits mainly from development of tourism and cooperation within the Commonwealth.
