Torres Strait Islands Flag
1992

The flag was designed by Torres Strait Islander Mr Bernard Namok. Green represents the islands, blue the sea and black the local Melanesian people. A stylised dancer’s head-dress known as a DARI and a five-pointed star appear on the flag. The star alludes to the five main island zones and is sometimes interpreted as a Christian symbol of the “Coming of the Light.”
