The flag of Wallis and Futuna features a red saltire on a white field, which superimposes the French Tricolore, symbolizing the territory’s status as a French overseas collectivity. The Tricolore, located in the upper left corner, contains three vertical bands of blue, white, and red. The blue band represents liberty, the white denotes equality, and the red signifies fraternity—core values of the French Republic. The red saltire, a prominent feature of the flag, echoes the traditional red crosses found on various flags of other French territories, underscoring the connection and unity among French territories. This design choice highlights Wallis and Futuna’s dual identity: local tradition and integral ties to France. The overall use of red and white in the flag also reflects the colors found in the traditional flags of both Wallis and Uvea, the main islands of the collectivity.
