Flag of Palau (GIF)



The Palau flag is a light blue flag with a large yellow disc, slightly to the left of the center. The bright blue symbolizes the Pacific Ocean and also represents the transition from foreign domination to self-government. Although the golden disc looks like the sun, it actually represents the moon. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 5:8, and the flag was adopted on January 1, 1981.

Its seal shows the traditional Bai, a meeting house for representatives of the people, built on stones representing the provinces of the country.

The Palau flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Palau, officially known as the Republic of Palau, is an island country located in the western Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Ngerulmud and its population is about 22,000.
