Brief History

The first country to colonise the Solomon Islands was the Spanish in 1568.

The cross of burgundy flag, a white field and a large red crossing diagonal stripes, and the national Spanish flag would have been flown.

The final Spanish flag would have been the flag of Spanish East Indies, a red-yellow-red horizontal triband with the coat of arms centre left.

In 1884 the Northern Solomons became a Protectorate under the German Colonial Empire administered by German New Guinea.

The black-white-red horizontal tricolour of the German Colonial Empire and the white field with German national flag top left, black lion with red fleur-de-lise centre right were adopted.

In 1893 Southern Solomons became a British Protectorate under the Union Flag of the United Kingdom of Great Britain. By 1906 the whole of the Solomon Islands would be under British control and have a specific British Blue Ensign with a white disc, crown surrounded by “BRITISH SOLOMON ISLANDS”.

The coat of arms was changed in 1947 to feature a red shield with turtle and a vertical stripe made of black and white isosceles triangles. In 1955 the coat of arms was changed again to feature a shield split into five parts with the images of a lion turtle and other symbols of the Solomon Islands. When the country became The Solomon Island in 1975 the flag remained the same.

In 1977 the Solomon Islands gained independence a new flag was adopted.

The design is a blue-green diagonal bicolour with a diagonal yellow stripe and five five-pointed white stars in a H shape top left.

Each element of the flag has a specific meaning. The blue represents the ocean, the green is the land and the yellow is sunshine. The five stars are the main Solomon Islands.
