Marshall Islands Flag
We carry authentic Marshall Islands Flags in both indoor and outdoor varieties. Our flags are proudly made in the United States from durable nylon and are printed with vibrant long-lasting inks. The Marshall Islands national flag is often displayed at embassies, outside of businesses associated with Marshall Islands, and at the homes of people who take great pride in their Marshall Islands heritage.
Our indoor flags are finished with a pole hem and your choice of with or without golden fringe. Gold fringe is the traditional way to display an indoor flag, however, some people choose without fringe for a simple and clean look that is also less expensive. If you are looking for a complete indoor presentation set, our Build Your Own Indoor International Flag Set program allows you to select a durable nylon indoor Marshall Islands Flag and choose between premium quality poles, bases, and ornaments, and tassel. For indoor applications, most buyers choose a 3ft. x 5ft. flag with an 8ft. pole, however, if you have a low ceiling, you may opt for a 7ft. pole, which is designed to work with drop ceilings. If you are looking for a very substantial international flag display, our 4ft. x 6ft. indoor flags can be paired with a 9ft. pole for our largest indoor display option.
Our outdoor international flags are finished with a canvas header and brass grommets and are offered in four sizes: 2ft. x 3ft., 3ft. x 5ft., 4ft. x 6ft., and 5ft. x 8ft., to fit any sized flagpole. Typically, outdoor flags are flown outside of government organizations, businesses, and institutions on in-ground and wall-mount flagpoles, however, some people also buy these flags to display their international pride at home. If you are looking for a wall-mount Marshall Islands flag set to display outside of your home, our Build Your Own Outdoor International Flag Set program will allow you to choose between premium quality 6ft. poles and brackets to display the Marshall Islands Flag on your front porch. Outdoor flags can also be displayed indoors on interior walls of your home with screws anchored in the wall to attach to the grommets.
In addition to the flags we offer for purchase, we maintain an archive of the audio and lyrics of the Marshall Islands National Anthem, historical information about the Marshall Islands flag, demographic data about Marshall Islands, and free high resolution images of the Marshall Islands flag for use in projects and on websites.

History of the Marshall Islands Flag
The Marshall Islands flag features a dark blue field with an orange and white stripe running diagonally across the flag. At the top, to the left of the stripes is a star that has 20 small points and 4 large points. The blue color of the flag represents the Pacific Ocean, the white color represents peace, and the orange color represents courage. The orange and white stripes represent the Ratak Chain (sunrise) and the Ralik Chain (sunset). The 24 points on the star represent the electoral districts and the 4 long points represent the main culture centers, which are, Majuro, Jaluit, Wotje, and Ebeye. The orange and white diagonal bands on the Marshall Islands Flag represent the equator. The Marshall Islands Flag was adopted on May 1st, 1979, when the country became self-governing.
The Marshall Islands are a Micronesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, halfway between Hawaii and Australia. The islands are separated into two chains of islands (Ratak Chain and Ralik Chain). One lies to the east (Ratak-sunrise) and one lies to the West (Ralik-sunset). The Marshall Islands consist of 29 coral atolls, thousands of minute islets, and masses of small low-lying islands. The Marshall Islands are located only 7ft above the sea. The capital city of Marshall Islands is called Majuro and is also the largest and most populated city. The second largest city is called Ebeye. The Marshall Islands gained its name from British explorer John Marshall who visited the island in 1788 with Thomas Gilbert, also an explorer. Before it was named Marshall Islands, the natives called it "Jolet Jen Anij" which translates as "Gifts from God."
The Marshall Islands have been under the rule of various countries throughout the years. In 1874, the Marshall Islands were claimed by Spain until Spain sold the islands to the German Empire, resulting in them becoming part of German New Guinea in 1885. In 1919, during WWI, the Japanese invaded, defeating Spain and the Marshall Islands was now under the rule of the Japanese until WWII. This was when America invaded the country and destroyed a lot of the Japanese bases and took control of the Marshall Islands in 1944.
Once the Americans had captured the Marshall Islands, they began using the islands as locations for testing nuclear weapons. In 1952, as a result of "Ivy Mike" (the first hydrogen bomb), one of the islands (Elugelab) was destroyed and over the years, it caused many disputes. The Americans ruled until 1979, when the Marshall Islands government was established, and the country became self-governing. In 1986, the Marshall Islands gained full independence from the USA, even though they turn to the USA for financial support.
The Marshall Islands is home to some of the best beaches in the world with the pure white sand surrounded and protected by blue lagoons. It is also considered to be one of the best places in the world for scuba diving and is renowned for providing the world’s largest shark sanctuary, yet it is one of the least visited countries in the world.
Marshall Islands National Anthem
Forever Marshall Island
My island (heart) lies o'er the ocean;
Like a wreath of flowers upon the sea;
With a (the) light of Maker from far above;
Shining the with the brilliance of rays of life;
Our Father's wondrous creation;
Bequeathed to us, our Motherland;
I'll never leave my dear home sweet home;
God of our forefathers protect and bless forever Marshall Islands.
