History of Fiji Flag

Facts and History Fijian Flag




The flag of Fiji was first flown on 10 October 1970. A competition was won by Mrs. Tessa Mackenzie and Mr. Robi Wilcock who believe it or not entered identical designs for the flag.

The flag has a light blue field with the British flag in the upper left corner of the flag. The Fiji seal is in the middle of the right half of the flag.

The top of the shield has a lion with a peeled coconut. The shield is quartered by a St. George Cross.

In the upper left corner there are three sugar canes. On the right is a coconut palm. On the lower left is a dove with an olive branch and on the right a branch of bananas.

The flag was first adopted on 30 September 1970. And it was first hoisted at Albert Park on 10 October 1970.

To avoid the cheering in other change of flag ceremonies when the old flag is lowered and a new one is raised, both sides wanted a dignified ceremony in Fiji.

It was decided to have a final ceremony with the Union Jack lowered with respect at midnight of 10 October 1970. And the new flag was raised the next day.

There is a presidential flag and a Governor General flag but we won’t discuss those at this time.
