Niue Flag Meaning:
The Union Jack represents Niue's ties to Britain and New Zealand, as independence in free association with New Zealand was proclaimed in 1974. The yellow represents the sun above Nuie and the affection the country feels towards New Zealand. The four small stars on the Union Jack represent the Southern Cross constellation and New Zealand. It's the same constellation that appears on New Zealand's flag. The larger star placed on the blue circle represents the independent island of Nuie standing alone, surrounded by the Pacific Ocean.

Niue Flag History:
The Niue flag was adopted on October 15, 1975, after the country proclaimed independence in free association with New Zealand in 1974.
