Flag of Tokelau (GIF)


Tokelau is a dependent territory of New Zealand in the southern Pacific Ocean and consists of three tropical coral atolls. It has no capital, and its population is about 1,500 people.

The Tokelau flag is a blue flag with a yellow stylized sailing Tokelauan canoe on the right and four five-pointed white stars forming the southern cross on the left. The canoe symbolizes the journey to find the best government structure for Tokelau's people, while the Southern Cross symbolizes a navigational aid for the journey. The white stars of the Southern Cross are a symbol of Christianity, and white also signifies cooperation and unity among the Tokelau atolls. While yellow stands for a happy, peaceful community, blue stands for the ocean and sky. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on September 7, 2009.
