Cook Islands flag

The current flag of the Cook Islands consists of a blue ensign with the Union Flag in the upper left corner and a circle of 15 white five-pointed stars in the right half. The blue represents the ocean that surrounds the Cook Islands and the peaceful nature of the people.

The Union Flag symbolizes the country's historic ties to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations. The 15 stars represent the 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands, including Tongareva, Rakahanga, Manihiki, Pukapuka, Nassau, Suwarrow, Palmerston, Aitutaki, Manuae, Takutea, Atiu, Mitiaro, Mauke, Rarotonga, and Mangaia.

The circle of stars represents unity and strength, as well as the unity of the 15 islands as one people. The flag was officially adopted in 1979, replacing a previous design that had been in use since 1974.
