About this deal

The blue and white wavy bands represent the Pacific Ocean, which surrounds Kiribati, and the sun refers to Kiribati's position astride the Equator. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of its knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact. Any appliqué work is hand stitched onto the design of the flag in our 115gsm Ministry of Defence approved knitted polyester flag fabric.

Printed onto 115gsm quality knitted polyester these flags still have the same print quality as our other printed flags. An anti-fray netting can be added to your knitted polyester or handsewn flag to help prolong the life of your flag. The British acquired extensive colonies and protectorates in the Pacific Ocean during the 19th century, including the Gilbert Islands, with their Micronesian population, and the nearby Ellice Islands, which were dominated by Polynesians.

However, the local people insisted on the original design, in which the top and bottom halves of the flag were equal, the sun and local frigate birds small, and the various design elements outlined in black.
