Flag of Solomon Islands (GIF)


The Solomon Islands flag consists of a yellow diagonal line that separates the blue top triangle from the green lower triangle, and there are five white stars in the upper left corner of the blue triangle. The blue color represents the Pacific Ocean. The color green refers to soil with trees and plants growing on it. The yellow color symbolizes the sun. The stars symbolize the provinces where the country was divided during the country's independence. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on November 18, 1977.

The shield in its coat of arms contains symbols representing different districts of the islands. At the top of the helmet at the top of the shield is a sun on a traditional boat. The shield is supported by two wild native animals, a saltwater crocodile and a shark.
