The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) adopted this flag in 1979. The blue field represents the Pacific Ocean, while the four stars represent the states in the federation: Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae, and Yap. The blue field is also adopted from the UN flag, while the custom of stars representing states comes from the US flag.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
