Cook Islands Flag GIF

The flag of the Cook Islands (Maori: Te pīwari o ngā Kuki Airani) is a blue ensign consisting of the Union Flag on the top left and fifteen white stars lined up in a circle on the right. The Union Flag is a symbol of the country's historical ties with the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. The fifteen stars represent the fifteen islands that make up the Cook Islands. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on August 4, 1979.

The blue shield in its coat of arms includes the stars on the flag. Behind the shield is a cross and a Rarotongan club, symbolizing Christianity and tradition. Above the shield is a traditional headdress of red feathers, and the shield is supported by a flying fish and a white tern.

The Cook Islands flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
