The flag of Christmas Island is diagonally divided.
The blue and green triangles represent the sea surrounding the island and the vegetation of the island. The Southern cross in the blue triangle is the representation appearing in the Australian flag.
The image in the green triangle is the Golden Bosun Bird, which is unique to the island.
The gold disk in the center of the flag represents the island's phosphate mining history and originally included to provide a background for the green map of Christmas Island.
