The Official Flags of the
Provisional Peoples'
Democratic Republic
of Diego Garcia
 
 
 

Our Battle Flag:

PROPEOPDEMREP BATTLE FLAG:   Derived from both the American and the British flags, with the Jack of each sharing the field, symbolizing the friendship of the U.S. and U.K.  The stripes represent the unique and separate nations of each.  Over the Jack is the map of the Republic.  In the field is  a death's head representing the loss of hope for all who venture to the Republic.  The head is surmounted by a bonnet of tropical flowers representing the tropical beauty of the Republic.  The lettering stands for "Diego Garcia" and "Indian Ocean".  Beneath are two cutlasses, dripping with blood, representing the contribution of the Citizens of the Republic to maintaining world freedom by destroying the evil twins of Terrorism and Tyranny, and the shedding of the blood of our enemies (on several ocassions to date).  The Blue and Gold in the swords represent the official colors of both the US Navy and US Air Force.

Our Civil Ensign:

The Civil Ensign represents the colors of the sea, the sky, and the lush tropical island itself.  The four stars in the field represent the Southern Cross, symbolizing the Republic's location South of the Equator.

wearing as an article of clothing (but looking at these pictures, I'm not complaining):
