Description

Quoting from the Saibai Island webpage:

The flag of the island of Saibai, just south of the coast of Papua New Guinea, is dark blue with a green triangle at the hoist on which is placed a yellow leaf, symbol of peace. The green colour symbolises the land, blue is the sea, while the white eight-pointed star signifies Australia. The flag was designed by the local council members.
In the image shown, the white star is placed in the fly on the blue background. It is interesting that the council members chose the eight-pointed star to represent Australia, rather than the seven pointed star. I wonder exactly what their thinking was on the matter, and whether it was at all influenced by the use of the eight-pointed star in the centenary of federation celebrations in 2001.

This is quite similar to the unidentified flag reported here. It is too different for a mis-observation, but similar enough to have been a previous design...
