Flag of Christmas Island

The diagonal green and blue parts represent the island’s and the sea’s vegetation, respectively. The phosphate mines that are present in the area are represented by the golden ring in the ensign’s heart.

In 1986, Christmas Island’s flag was informally adopted. The flag was given to the Christmas Island Shire by Bill Taylor, the territory’s administrator, on Australia Day in 2002, making it official.

Both a civic and state flag or ensign are flown over Christmas Island.
