Niue flag

Niue's national flag was formally approved on October 15, 1975. It has a yellow background and prominently displays the Union Jack in the canton, with a single star superimposed over it and four stars arranged in a diamond configuration around it.

This flag is uncommon among those influenced by British ensigns in that it features a yellow backdrop as well as a modified Union Jack. Patricia Rex, the wife of former Niue Prime Minister Robert Rex, designed the flag.

Country information

Niue is a small island nation located in the South Pacific Ocean, about 2,400 miles northeast of New Zealand. It is a self-governing state in free association with New Zealand, and is one of the world's smallest countries in terms of both land area and population, with just over 1,000 residents. Niue is known for its stunning natural beauty, with a rugged coastline, crystal clear waters, and lush forests.

The history of Niue dates back to ancient times, with the first human settlements dating back to at least 1000 AD. The island was first explored by Europeans in the late 18th century, and was later annexed by the British in the mid-19th century. Niue became a self-governing state in free association with New Zealand in 1974, and today has a high degree of autonomy.

The economy of Niue is small and largely dependent on foreign aid and tourism. The country has a tropical climate, with hot and humid weather year-round. The official language of Niue is Niuean, a Polynesian language, and the country has a predominantly Christian population.
