Christmas Island Flag
The flag of Christmas Island is a green and blue background, split from the top left corner to the bottom right, representing the land and sea respectively. The Southern Cross constellation appears in the bottom left of the flag, similar to the flag of Australia. In the top right, there is a golden bosun bird, a symbol of the island.
In the center of the flag, on a golden disc, is a map of the island in green. The disc itself was originally included to offset the green color of the map, but has become linked to the mining industry.
The flag was unofficially adopted in 1986 after being chosen as the winner in a competition for a flag for the territory. It was made official in 2002 on Australia Day when the administrator of the territory presented the flag to the Christmas Island Shire. It was designed by Tony Couch of Sydney, Australia.
