Flags of the World: French Polynesia

French Polynesia is a territory of France, but this country also happens to have its own unique flag. It contains horizontal stripes of red and white, which are also traditional Polynesian colors. The Polynesian Flag was approved as the official flag in the 1980s, but because of its status as a French territory, the flag of French Polynesia must always be flown with the French Tricolor.

The very center of the French Polynesia flag is what sets it apart from many others as it contains the national coat of arms. The bottom of the design consists of blue and white waves that represent the sea, while orange rays of light make up the top half of the design as a symbol of life. A canoe with five passengers floats on the sea, which represent the five island groups of the nation.
