Like This Page?

All of our printed Marshall Island flags are made by a process called Dye Sublimation. This process impregnates the fibres of the fabric, the result is a flag that has very accurate colour, and importantly the design appears clearly on both sides of the flag. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.

Brief History

In 1878 Germans had control of the Marshall Islands and Ralik Islands. The flag of the German Ralik Islands was made up of five black-white-red-white-black horizontal bands.

The Marshall Islands became governed by German New Guinea in 1884. The flag of German New Guinea Company was a plain white field with black-white-red horizontal tricolour German flag top left and a black lion holding a red fleur-de-lis.

After World War One Japan was given control of the South Pacific islands which included the Marshall Islands under the South Pacific Mandate. The Flag of the South Pacific Mandate was the Japanese white field with red sun flag.

In 1944 The USA overthrew Japan in the Marshall Islands talking control of Administration. The flag adopted was the 48 white star with 13 horizontal red and white striped Flag of the United States of America.

The United Nations Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands was set up in 1947 to officially give the United States of America administration rights to the Marshall Islands, meaning only the UN could terminate the trusteeship. The sky blue field with world map and white laurel wreath flag of the United Nations was adopted.

In 1959 the United States of America gained Alaska as another state and added an extra star to the flag.

By 1960 Hawaii was added as another American State and the stars on the flag of the United States of America totalled 50.

The Flag of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands was changed in 1965 to a grey-blue field with six white five-pointed stars in a circle.

In 1979 the Marshall Islands became self-governing and a new plain blue flag with two large yellow and white stripes widening from bottom left to top right and a white star with four large and twenty small rays was adopted.

The flag is a symbol of peace, courage, sunrise and sunset with each point of the star representing the districts and cultural centres.

The Seal of the Republic of the Marshall Islands

The Seal of the Republic of the Marshall Islands was adopted in 1986.

The design features a disc depicting an angel in flight above the sea in-between land with a palm tree and a boat and a nautical chart.  Above is the words “REPUBLIC OF THE MARSHALL ISLANDS” and below “ACCOMPLISHMENT THROUGH JOINT EFFORT”. All this is surrounded by a chain.
