Fiji Flag Description

The flag of Fiji is a national symbol that represents the country’s identity and sovereignty. It consists of a light blue field with the Union Jack in the canton (upper left corner) and the Fijian coat of arms on the fly (right side).

The Union Jack, also known as the Union Flag, is a combination of the flags of England, Scotland, and Ireland. It represents Fiji’s historical ties to the British Empire. Fiji was a British colony from 1874 until it gained independence in 1970. The inclusion of the Union Jack in the flag acknowledges this colonial past.

The coat of arms on the flag features several significant elements. At the top is a golden lion holding a cocoa pod, which represents the British colonial influence on Fiji’s agriculture. Below the lion is a shield divided into four quarters. The top left quarter depicts a sugar cane plant, symbolizing Fiji’s major agricultural industry. The top right quarter shows a coconut palm, representing the country’s abundant natural resources. The bottom left quarter displays a dove carrying an olive branch, symbolizing peace. And the bottom right quarter features a bunch of bananas, representing Fiji’s tropical climate and fertile land.

Beneath the shield is a ribbon with the national motto “Rerevaka na Kalou ka Doka na Tui” written in Fijian. It translates to “Fear God and honor the Queen,” reflecting Fiji’s religious and monarchical traditions.

The current design of the flag was adopted on October 10, 1970, when Fiji gained independence from British rule. However, it underwent a slight modification in 2013. Prior to 2013, the coat of arms on the flag featured a European-style helmet above the shield. This was replaced with a Polynesian-style canoe, known as a drua, to better represent Fiji’s indigenous culture.

The flag of Fiji is a symbol of national pride and unity. It represents the country’s history, culture, and aspirations for the future.
