Vanuatu adopted this flag in 1980, the same year it gained independence. Green represents the land’s richness, red symbolizes the blood of men and bores, and black stands for the ni-Vanuatu people. The yellow fimbriations represent the light of the Gospel spreading through the islands in the Pacific Ocean. A boar’s tusk, a symbol of prosperity, and 2 namele fern leaves, representing peace, are depicted in yellow.
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.
