Nauru's flag, known as “anidenin Naoero” in Nauruan, was adopted on January 31, 1968, the day of the island's independence. Prior to independence, a local design competition was organized to select the flag.
The flag design depicts Nauru's position metaphorically by displaying a yellow star south of the equator on a blue field, which represents the Pacific Ocean, where Nauru is located. The blue background also reflects the water that surrounds the island nation, while the yellow star represents the country's location on the globe. The flag is also meant to reflect the Nauruans' togetherness and their hopes for a prosperous future as an independent nation.

Nauru is a small island nation located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It is the smallest republic in the world in terms of both land area and population, with just over 10,000 residents. Nauru is located in the Micronesian region of the Pacific, about 2,000 miles northeast of Australia.
The history of Nauru can be traced back thousands of years, with the first human settlements dating back to at least 1000 BC. The island was first explored by Europeans in the early 19th century, and was later annexed by Germany in the late 1800s. After World War I, Nauru became a League of Nations mandate territory and was later administered by Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. It gained independence in 1968.
Nauru's economy is largely based on the export of phosphates, which are used in the production of fertilizers. The country also earns income from foreign aid and the operation of an offshore banking industry. Nauru has a tropical climate, with hot and humid weather year-round. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and has a number of beaches and lagoons, making it a popular destination for snorkeling and diving.
The official language of Nauru is Nauruan, which is a distinct Pacific Island language. The country has a parliamentary democracy, with a president serving as the head of state and a parliament consisting of 18 members.
