All of our printed Nauru flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. 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 1886 Germany took control of Nauru and by 1888 was Governed by German New Guinea. The flag of German New Guinea was a white filed with German national flag top left and a black lion with red fleur-de-lis centre right.

After World War Two both Australia, Great Britain and New Zealand were chosen as co-trustees of Nauru under the Mandate of Nauru. The flag adopted at this point was the Union Flag of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Australia.

The Japanese occupied Nauru between 26th August 1942 and 13th September 1945. The white field and red sun flag of the Japanese Empire was the de-facto flag.  When the Japanese lost control of the area the country went back the co-trustees.

In 1947 The Trusteeship of Nauru was formed between the United Nations, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The flag was the Australian Civil Ensign which is a red ensign with five seven-pointed stars in the shape of the Southern Cross on the right side and on the left a large seven-pointed star under the Union Flag of Great Britain.

Nauru gained independence from the Trusteeship in 1968. The flag adopted is a dark blue field with horizontal yellow stripe and a white 12-pointed star lower left.

The gold stripe represents the equator with the blue at either side representing the Pacific Ocean and two boulders. The star is positioned to show how far the island is from the equator and the white of the star is phosphate with the twelve points is represents the twelve tribes of Nauru.

The Coat of Arms of Nauru

The Coat of Arms of Nauru was adopted in 1968.

It features a shield split into three. The top part is the symbol for Phosphorous over a yellow woven background. The lower left part is a black frigatebird on a white background and blue wavy lines. The lower right part is a calophyllum flow on a blue background. At either side are ropes and palm leaves, feathers and shark teeth.

Above is a 12-pointed star and ribbon stating “NAOERO” and below is a banner stating “GOD’S WILL FIRST”.
