Flag of Niue (GIF)


The Niue flag consists of a yellow star in the center of the Union Jack in the upper left corner and four yellow stars forming a diamond around it. The yellow color represents Niue's bright sunlight, the four small stars represent the Southern Cross and the island's union with New Zealand, and the large starry blue disc represents the island of Niue and the azure sea surrounding the island. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on October 15, 1975. Also, its seal consists of a centered coat of arms of New Zealand.
