Description of the flag

The stars are not randomly distributed. The 5 stars on the left are the Southern Cross. In traditional Marshallese navigation, that constellation is known as "Triggerfish of Ebon" and is the marker that navigators follow when sailing to Ebon from the northern atolls. The two stars on the right are strange because they do not fit in that spot in reality. They could represent alpha and beta Centauri, which in English are known as The Pointers and are not far from the Southern Cross (though not in the spot shown on the flag). I will ask the mayor and traditional leader about this. The reason the smallest star has only 5 prongs is that it also stands for the ship called "Morning Star", which brought the first Christian missionaries to the island in 1857. The two stripes represent the two main regions of the atoll (windward and leeward). The red color represents the colors of the dawn and sunset, which are associated with a legendary female figure from this atoll.
