Brief History

In 1865 the Bau, Rewa, Cakaudrove, Macuata, Naduri and Lakeba joined together to create the United Tribes of Fiji. The flag adopted was a blue field with large white five-pointed star in the centre.

In 1867 the chief of Lakeba became president and the flag was changed to a blue field with half a sun with 30 rays and a crown with a cross top left.

The Kingdom of Lau was established in 1869 and a new flag with a white and red horizontal bicolour with a red cross top left was adopted.

In 1817 the country became the Kingdom of Fiji a white-blue vertical bicolour with a red shield and white dove below a crown with cross where the colours meet.

In 1874 Fiji became a British colony and the Union Flag of the United Kingdom of Great Britain was adopted. The country gained a British Blue Ensign in 1908 with a white disc and coat of arms.

In 1924 the white disc was removed and by 1970 the colour of the field was changed to a sky blue and the tribe members, banner and boat removed from the coat of arms on the flag.

From 1970 Fiji became a Dominion with the Queen of England still as the head of state. The flag was a sky blue field with a national flag top left and the shield of the coat of arms centre right.

When the country became a republic in 1987 the flag remained the same. There is a new flag of Fiji without any British design announced in July 2016.
