Description

Choiseul Province is one of the nine provinces of the Solomon Islands. It lies between the island of Bougainville (part of Papua New Guinea) and Santa Isabel in the west of the Solomon Islands. It consists mainly of Choiseul Island with an area of 3 294 km² and further includes three small surrounding islands: Taro Island (100 km²), Vaghena (243 km²) and Rob Roy (200 km²). It has a population of 20,008 (1999). The capital is Taro, on Taro Island.

The flag has horizontal stripes of different widths. The stripes symbolize :
- blue = Pacific
- yellow = Land of Choiseul Island
- green = flora and vegetation .
- red = fauna
- black = Melanesian people

The white stars represent the church districts (parish): North West, North East, Upper South Choiseul and South Choiseul. In the center is a white circle with a black Kuvojo (or Kukuvojo). The Kuvojo is the Choiseul Crested Pigeon (Microgoura meeki), a presumably extinct pigeon which was only known on the Solomon island of Choiseul in the Pacific.

Based on http://www.mpgis.gov.sb/index.php/resources/category/1-pgsp-newsletters there's some kind of "decoration" on the ring surrounding the bird which is facing the fly not the hoist. The ring on the flag used in the parade shown at http://www.sportingpulse.com/gallery.cgi?g=2452&e=3511&et=1&c=1-3511-0-0-0 obviously is plain but the bird indeed seems to face the fly.
