Kiribati Flag - This flag design is based on the coat of arms, which is of a gold sun rising from the behind the waters, with a gold frigatebird flying over the sun. The 3 wavy white stripes represent the ocean and the three groups (Gilbert, Phoenix and Line Islands). The 17 rays of the sun represent 16 Gilbert islands and Banaba (Former Ocean Island). The frigatebird symbolises the sea, power and freedom.
This design was adopted in 1979 after independence was grated, and a competition was held to choose a new national flag. The new flag was hoisted during the independence day celebrations in the Capital, Tarawa on 12th July 1979.
Our Kiribati flags are finished with a loop at the top and bottom of the flag to be used with clips to attach to the rope and run up a flag pole. Clips are included with the flag for your convenience.
