Papua New Guinean flag is offered in high quality embroidery.
In the hoist, it depicts the Southern Cross, which symbolizes the country's relationship with Australia and other countries of the South Pacific; in the fly, a raggiana bird of paradise is silhouetted as a symbol of the country's independence.
The designer of the flag was 15-year-old schoolgirl Susan Huhume, who won a nationwide competition for a new flag design in 1971. Red and black also have long been traditional colors of many Papua New Guinean tribes.
