The flag of Tuvalu features a light blue field with the Union Jack in the canton and nine yellow five-pointed stars in the fly. The light blue represents the Pacific Ocean, which is a crucial part of Tuvaluan life, reflecting its vastness and importance for the island nation. The Union Jack signifies Tuvalu’s historical ties to the United Kingdom. Arranged in a pattern that represents the island group’s layout from north to south, the nine stars symbolize the nine islands of Tuvalu—Nanumea, Niutao, Nui, Nukufetau, Funafuti, Nukulaelae, Vaitupu, Niulakita, and Nanumaga. Each star stands for one island, highlighting the unity and individual significance of each island within the nation. This design conveys a sense of community and connection among the islands, underscored by their collective representation under one flag.
