Flag of Palau

The flag of Palau was adopted on January 1, 1981, when the archipelago decided to secede from the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands and the Republic of Palau was proclaimed under the protection of the United States. The flag consists of a pale blue leaf and a yellow circle slightly centered towards the flagpole side. When the flag is hung, the impression is created that the circle is in the center of the flag. The blue color symbolizes the Pacific Ocean surrounding the islands, and the yellow circle is said to resemble the full moon, which is an important period for the islanders. According to them, activities such as fishing, sowing and harvesting are most effective during this phase of the moon.
