Fijian Flag Article

dotThe Current flag of Fiji was Adopted on the 10 October 1970, The flag had remained the Same as during the Colonial period. Also It has remained unchanged Since the Fijian was declared a Republic in 1987. The Current flag is very Similar to the Colonial ensign it used prior to independence, the main differences being the latter used a darker shade of blue and displayed the entire Fijian coat of arms as opposed to just the shield.

The flag of Fiji is a shade of a blue sky with the British Union Jack in the upper left corner. To the right of the Union Jack there a shield from the coat of arms of Fiji. The blue sky of the Fiji flag reflects the island nation's strong relationship with the Pacific Ocean that surrounds it. The British Union Jack represents Fiji's history as a colony of the United Kingdom.

The flag of the UK in the upper hoist-side quadrant and the Fijian shield centered on the outer half of the flag; the blue symbolizes the Pacific ocean and the Union Jack reflects the links with Great Britain the shield taken from Fiji's coat of arms depicts a yellow lion above a white field quartered by the cross of Saint George; the four quarters depict stalks of sugarcane A palm tree, bananas, and a white dove..

Fiji held a competition upon its independence to design a new Fiji flag, but their flag now looks really similar to their old flag. This might be because Fiji still has strong cheap and political ties with Britain.
