Flags of the World: Christmas Island

The Christmas Island flag is a member of the Australian territory flags. It has a slanted design with green in the top right half and blue in the bottom left half. These colors were chosen to represent the abundant plant life on the island that is surrounded by the blue sea.

In the center of the flag is a golden ring, which represents the phosphate mines in the region, with the outline of the island filled in with the color green. The Golden Bosun Bird is located on the green portion of the flag as it’s one of the most beloved birds on the island.

The Christmas Island flag is fairly modern in that it was unofficially adopted in 1986. It was made official in 2002 by Bill Taylor, the administrator of the territory, when he presented the flag to the Christmas Island Shire. It is used as both the state and civil flag.
