FijiDarkBlue

The flag of Fiji with the similar shade of blue.

The original flag was to have a regular blue-coloured background. However, the flags of Australia, New Zealand, and many others already adopted similar flags. The designers of the Fijian flag therefore decided to change the background colour to a lighter shade of blue, representing the Pacific Ocean. They also placed the Fijian national coat of arms in the centre fly.
