Flag of Cook Islands

The official flag of the Cook Islands is a blue ensign and bears the Union Flag in the top left corner. On the right side of the flag are fifteen white stars forming a circle. The stars form a symmetrical ring and are all of equal size.
The Union Flag represents the nation's historic ties to the United Kingdom and to the Commonwealth of Nations.
