Flag of Christmas Island (GIF)


Christmas Island is an Australian external territory located in the Indian Ocean. Its capital is Flying Fish Cove, its population is about 2,000, and its area is 135 km².

The Christmas Island flag consists of two green and dark blue triangular fields that are created by dividing the flag diagonally from the upper left corner to the lower right corner. There is the Southern Cross of five white stars in the lower blue triangle and a yellow bird (the golden bosun bird) in the upper green triangle. In the middle of the flag is a golden disc containing the shape of the island. The blue color represents the sea, while the green color symbolizes the land. The stars on the flag are the same as the stars on the Australian flag, and the bosun bird is a symbol of the island. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on January 26, 2002.

The flag of Christmas Island has been altered on Wikipedia, as the bird image on the right side was revectorized to look more like an actual hummingbird.

Updated golden bosun bird. The blue color is the same as the Australian flag. Other colors were chosen in harmony with blue, since an officially announced color code could not be reached and the wikipedia editor could not be sure of the colors.
