Formerly a part of the United States Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands became self-governing in 1979, and became an independent republic in free association with the United States of America in 1986. The current flag dates from 1979. The blue represents the Pacific Ocean. The star represents the nation, the 24 points being for the 24 municipalities.
The four longer rays represent Majuro (the capital), Wotji, Jaluit and Kwajalein. These rays form a cross symbolizing Christianity. The position of the star reflects the Marshall Islands geographic position a few degrees north of the equator, which is represented by the two stripes. The stripes' widening shape symbolizes the increase in growth and vitality of life. The orange represents wealth and bravery and the white represents brightness.BUY NOW
