The flag of Vanuatu features two horizontal bands of red (top of the flag) and green (bottom of the flag) with a black triangle at the hoist of the flag. Each section of the flag is then separated by a black edged yellow stripe in the shape of a Y. At the centre of the black triangle sits a boar's tusk crossed by two namele fern leaves, all in yellow.
The flag of Vanuatu was officially adopted on 18 February 1980 following the country gaining its independence from Britain and France. The flag's colours are derived from the colours of the Vanuaaku Party which led the country to independence. The flag's Y shape represents the pattern of the islands in the Pacific Ocean whilst the boar's tusk is a local symbol of prosperity and is crossed by the local namele fern leaves, which have 39 fronds each representing 1 of the 39 members of the Legislative Assembly in Vanuatu.
