Flag of Nauru (GIF)

The Nauru flag shows the geographical position of the island nation: one degree south of the Equator line. The yellow horizontal stripe representing Ecuador is located in a blue area that represents the Pacific Ocean. Nauru is symbolized by a 12-pointed white star, while each point of the star represents one of the 12 indigenous tribes on the island. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on January 31, 1968, which is Independence Day.

On the upper part of the shield in its coat of arms, there is the alchemical symbol of phosphorus, which symbolizes phosphate mining, on the golden woven symbolizing the people of Nauru. Its lower part features a frigatebird and a calophyllum flower branch. The shield is surrounded by tribal chief gear worn in ceremonies: strings of palm leaves, frigate bird feathers, and shark teeth.

The Nauru flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Nauru, officially known as the Nauru Republic, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific. Its capital is Yaren (de facto), and its population is about 13,650.
