The flag is the banner of the arms that was given to Gilbert and Ellice Islands in 1937. The Ellice Islands became what we know as Tuvalu today, and the Gilbert Islands changed their name to Kiribati, but the shield remained the same. It is red with white and blue wavy lines on the bottom representing the ocean, a golden sun rising from it, and a bird flying above it. This flag came in use in 1979.
3′ x 5′ nylon flag with pole sleeve and gold fringe for indoor use.
