Description of the Flag

Based on the stamp we have (flag stamp #00408), here's an image of the Ngiwal flag. It is a red flag with a large circular seal centered on it, on which we can see a tree from one of whose boughs water (with some fish in it!) gushes into a large pool, masoned with black stones, placed in front of it. This is surrounded by white ring with black edges, on which four golden stars are placed in the cardinal points; the whole sits on a red 2:3 (?) background with a narrow white fimbriation.

According to http://pacificdigitallibrary.org, red symbolizes bravery. The stone platform with four megaliths represents the four cornerstones or four top leadership of the community. The tree is a breadfruit tree; sea water gushing from the tree represents abundance of sea food. The four stars represent the four hamlets forming Ngiwal, that is, Ngercheluuk, Ngersngai, Ngellau and Ngermechau.
