Palau is in need of a coordinator. If you might be interested please contact us by using the link to the left.
Palau adopted its flag in October 1980 when the islands became self-governing and proclaimed a Republic on 1 January 1981. The disk represents the moon as a symbol of national unity and destiny. The blue field is supposed to represent independence.
Palau was part of the Trust Territory of the Pacific, administered by the US. The flag for the Trust Territory was blue with six stars arranged in a hexagon. When independence came Palau and the Marshall Islands decided to separate from the rest of the group, which became the Federated States of Micronesia with the same blue flag with four stars instead of six, for Kosrae, Pohnpei, Truk and Yap.
