About the French Polynesian flag

The flag of French Polynesia was adopted in 1984. The red and white colours have been taken from old Tahitian flags. An outrigger is depicted in the central disc over a stylised emblem of sun and sea; this is very similar to other flags in this area, for example, the flag of Kiribati. In some versions of this flag, five figures representing the peoples of the island group are included in the design.
