Tuvalu 🇹🇻 is an archipelago lying in Oceania between Australia and Hawaii. The flag consists of a pale blue sheet and a Union Jack flag in the upper left part of the flag. The blue color of the leaf represents the Pacific Ocean that surrounds the islands. Union Jack signals former ties to the UK, which Tuvalu got rid of in 1978. At that time it was known as the Ellice Islands. Another feature of the flag are nine yellow five-pointed stars, which represent nine inhabited islands that are part of Tuvalu. Unfortunately, Tuvalu is an area with a very low altitude, so is threatened by raising level of the world's oceans.
