Flag of Fiji (GIF)


The national flag of Fiji consists of a light blue ensign with a shield-shaped emblem taken from the national coat of arms of Fiji. The bright blue color symbolizes the Pacific Ocean. The golden lion at the top of the shield and the red Cross of Saint George, which divides the shield into four parts, represent the United Kingdom. The cocoa pod in the lion's claw and the sugar cane, coconut palm, and bananas in the sections represent the country's agricultural resources. In the lower left part, there is the white dove, the symbol of peace. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on October 10, 1970.

Also, its coat of arms includes a traditional Fijian canoe on top of the shield, supported on either side by two Fijian warriors. At the bottom is a Fijian slogan meaning "Fear God, Honor the Queen".

The Fiji flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Fiji, officially the Republic of Fiji, is an island country in Oceania in the South Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Suva, and its population is about 912,000.
