Flag of Vanuatu (GIF)

The flag of Vanuatu (Bislama: flaeg blong Vanuatu; French: Drapeau du Vanuatu) is a symbol-rich representation of the nation's identity and values. It consists of a black left triangle, two horizontal stripes, red and green, separated by a horizontal yellow Y shape with a black border. The black triangle features two crossed namele tree leaves surrounded by a wild boar tusk. The green color signifies the wealth of the islands, while the red color represents the universal bond of humanity through shared blood. The black symbolizes the Ni-Vanuatu people, the indigenous population. The yellow Y-shape signifies the arrangement of the Vanuatu islands on the map and the spreading light of the gospel across the islands, reflecting the predominantly Christian population. The wild boar tusk is a symbol of well-being, while the leaves embody peace, and the 39 leaflets represent the 39 members of the Vanuatu Parliament. Collectively, the flag encapsulates Vanuatu's cultural and religious identity, unity, and aspirations for peace, prosperity, and harmony.
