Solomon Islands Flag

Solomon Islands flag

The Solomon Islands flag consists of a yellow diagonal stripe separating the flag diagonally from the lower hoist-side corner, a blue upper triangle, and a green bottom triangle. A canton with five white stars appears in the upper hoist-side corner. This design was formally chosen in 1977 to replace the former British Blue Ensign, which was defiled with the protectorate's arms.

Since November 18th of that year, eight months before the country's independence, this flag has served as the official flag of the Solomon Islands. Although the number of provinces in the country has expanded since then, the number of stars on the flag that originally denoted them has stayed constant.
