Vanuatu's flag, popularly known as the “Flag of Independence,” was adopted on February 18, 1980, and is made up of red, green, black, and yellow colors. The flag was created to represent Vanuatu's rich culture, history, and people's unity.
A parliamentary committee chose the flag design, which is based on a flag created by local artist Kalontas Malon in 1977 and adopted by the Vanua'aku Pati, a political party that fought for Vanuatu's independence from France and the United Kingdom. Vanuatu gained independence on July 30, 1980, and the flag was formally adopted on that day.
The red tint on the flag symbolizes the blood of the ni-Vanuatu people who fought for the country's independence. The color green signifies the richness of the land and the people's sustainable livelihoods. The dark hue signifies Vanuatu's Melanesian people, while the yellow color represents the country's sand beaches, sunshine, and friendly people.
