Torres Strait Islander Flag

Torres Strait Islander flag is blue, green, black and white.

It has green and black stripes above and below the larger blue, in the middle of which is a Torres Strait islanders' dancer's head dress and a star, both in white.

The green represents the land. The blue represents the sea. The black repesents the Torres Strait Islander people, and the white is a symbol of peace.

The head dress is used in the traditional dance of Torres Strait Islanders, and it is a symbol for them.

The star has five points - one for each island group within the Torres Strait region.
