Papua New Guinea Flag
Papua New Guinea Flag - This flag was adopted in 1971 after a nationwide competition was held to design the Papua New Guinea flag. The winner was Susan Karike Huhume, who was just 15 years old at the time.
The flag is diagonally divided into two triangles - the upper is red with a soaring Raggiana Bird of Paradise in gold. The lower is black with the Southern Cross in white depicted on it.
Red and black are traditional colours of PNG, and the black white and red scheme was the colour of the German Empire flag, which had colonised New Guinea prior to 1918. The bird of paradise is also referenced on the national coat of arms.
Our World 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.
The flags come in a range of sizes for you to choose from, select your size from the drop down menu. We can make flags to your specifications such as a custom design or vertical sleeve finish, please contact us for a quote.
