Flag of Nauru

Use: State flag and civil ensign
Proportion: 1:2
Adopted: 1 January 1968
Design: A blue field with the thin yellow narrow horizontal stripe across in the center and the large white twelve-pointed star on the bottom of the stripe and near the hoist-side.
Following the independence of Nauru, the flag of Nauru was raised for the first time. The flag, chosen in a local design competition, was adopted on independence day, 31 January 1968. It depicts Nauru's geographical position, one degree south of the Equator. A gold horizontal stripe representing the Equator runs across a blue field for the Pacific Ocean. Nauru itself is symbolized by a white 12-pointed star. Each point represents one of the 12 indigenous tribes on the island.

Proportions and symbolism
The flag displays the geographical location of the island nation.

The narrow gold stripe with a width of ​1⁄24 of the length[citation needed] of the flag represents the Equator. The stripe along with the star signifies the location of the island in the Pacific Ocean just south of the Equator. The separation of the blue flag cloth into two equal parts recalls the saga, that the first inhabitants were to have been brought to Earth from two boulders.

The twelve points on the star represent the island's twelve original tribes. The following twelve tribes are:

Eamwit
Eamwitmwit
Ranibok
Irutsi
Iruwa
Eamwidara
Eaoru
Emangum
Deiboe
Eano
Emea
Iwi
Blue signifies the Pacific Ocean[1] while white, the color of the star, represents the phosphate[2] which was a major natural resource of the island nation.

Creation and adoption
The flag was created by a resident employed by the Australian flag manufacturer Evans. It was officially adopted on 31 January 1968. Unlike some flags of Pacific nations (e.g., that of Tuvalu), Nauru's flag has evoked little controversy.
