The flag of the Marshall Islands features a deep blue field with two diagonal orange and white stripes and a white, 24-pointed star in the upper hoist corner. The blue background represents the Pacific Ocean, which is central to the islanders’ way of life. The white and orange stripes extend from the lower hoist to the upper fly, suggesting a horizon with the orange stripe symbolizing courage and the white stripe symbolizing peace. The white star has 24 points, each representing one of the Marshall Islands’ electoral districts. The four elongated points of the star stand out more prominently, pointing towards the cardinal directions on a compass. This design reflects the Marshallese navigational skills and their connection to the sea, as well as their journey towards self-determination and a brighter future.
