Flag of Kiribati (GIF)



The flag of Kiribati (Gilbertese: buraki ni Kiribati) consists of a field of red with a yellow frigatebird at the top of the sun on the upper half and a blue field with three wavy white lines on the lower half. The wavy white lines on the blue represent the Pacific Ocean and the three island groups. The 17 rays of the sun represent the 16 Gilbert Islands and Banaba Island. The frigate bird symbolizes power and freedom, as well as sovereignty at sea. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on July 12, 1979.

The yellow ribbon below the shield, which is covered with the national flag on its coat of arms, features a Gilbertese motto meaning "Fear God, Honor the King."

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