New Flag for Fiji?


Recommended Posts

Answering bits from all the posts above:

Dominica uses a tiny bit of purple in its flag, because the flag depicts their national bird, which has a bit of purple in its plumage. The reason purple is so rare in flags is that, before the rise of synthetic dyes, it was notoriously difficult to reproduce.

I read that, if depicting an animal on a flag, that if the the animal is facing away from the hoist, it indicates running *away*, ergo, retreat, which is not an idea one wants to associate with a national flag. Therefore, the animal is pointed toward the hoist, as above. But it's been a while since I read that, and I don't remember where, so it's possible what I read was wrong.
