Patch of New Caledonia, the Melanesia area in the Pacific Ocean, a French overseas territory. In the past, it was a penal colony for criminals and opponents of the government in France.

The nature of the islands of this country is called a paradise at the end of the world, and Noumea (the capital) is called the "Paris of the Pacific" due to its original architecture amid tropical scenery. The Kanaks (Hawaiian for man) - the indigenous inhabitants of the islands - have a Cultural Center in the town of Hienghene. An interesting place is the Christmas Tree Island (Ile des Pins) located on the Tropic of Capricorn, where instead of the ubiquitous spots we can admire impressive pine trees on the coast.

On the Caledonian flag we see three horizontal stripes, which respectively symbolize:

- blue: sky and ocean waters

- red: struggle and blood shed in the fight for Kanak independence

- green: land and tribute to ancestors resting on native lands

On the left, in a yellow circle (sun symbol), there is a traditional Kanak arrow.
