History of Micronesia and Flag
History of Micronesia and Flag The flag of the Federated States of Micronesia, adopted November 10, 1979, consists of a light blue leaf with four white five-pointed stars. Because Micronesia is a group of islands located in the Pacific, the blue background represents the ocean that surrounds the islands. The four main islands (and federal states), called Square, Pohnpei,
Yap and Kasra, are represented by stars. In fact, the flag of Micronesia had six stars, but two stars were removed after separation from the Federation of Marshall Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands. Similar flags are generally the same as the number of states in Oceania.
History of Micronesia
Micronesia is one of the three major cultural areas of the Pacific. It is comprised of 2,500 islands located in the North Pacific between Hawaii and Japan. In the region, most of the lower corals contain the Atlas, which has a population of 200,000 people. Despite the details that these islands are spread over 8 million square kilometers in the sea, there is a specific pattern of Micronesians. Functional shapes, smooth design, and in some cases, intricate surface decoration highlight the art of the region.
The island of Micronesia is divided into seven different countries or regions. The majority of the central islands, known as the Caroline Islands, belong to the federal state of Micronesia. As an independent nation in its independent affiliation with the United States, Federated States of Micronesia is divided into four states: Yap, Chowk, Pohnpei and Kosri.
To the west of Yap (the island is also considered a part of Caroline) is the Republic Belau (or Palau). To the north are Guam and Northern Mariana Islands, both regional territories of the United States. To the east of the Caroline Islands there are two islands that run in parallel, called the Marshall Islands. To the southeast are the Nuru and the Kiribati (formerly known as Gilbert and the island of Phoenix), which are independent nations.
