Flag of Vanuatu (GIF)


The Vanuatu flag consists of two horizontal stripes red and green separated by a black left triangle and a horizontal yellow Y shape with a black border. The triangle has two crossed namele tree leaves surrounded by a wild boar tusk. The green color represents the wealth of the islands, the red represents the blood that unites humanity as human, and the black color represents the people of Ni-Vanuatu. The yellow Y-shape shows the arrangement of islands in the Pacific Ocean. The wild boar tusk is a symbol of well-being. The leaves represent peace and the 39 leaflets represent the 39 members of the Vanuatu Parliament. The height-to-width ratio on the flag is 19:36, and the flag was adopted on February 18, 1980.

The coat of arms depicts a Melanesian warrior holding a spear on a mountain. Below the warrior is a slogan written in Bislama, meaning "IN GOD WE STAND".

The Vanuatu flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
