Flag of Vanuatu 🇻🇺

Flag of Vanuatu

Vanuatu 🇻🇺 is an archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean which was known as New Hebrides until 1980. In this year was an independence from France and the UK was achieved. The leaf is divided into three main parts. On the pole side of the flag, a black wedge that divides the rest of the flag into red and green fields is placed. The inner parts of the fields are lined with yellow and black stripes. The wedge additionally carries a symbol of boar tusks and two branches of cycads, which stands for peace and prosperity. The red color of the flag refers to the blood of sacrificial boar as well as to human blood. The green bar represents the islands itself and the black one refers to its soil and Melanesian population. The letter "Y" reminds the shape of the archipelago visible from the height.
