The Official Flag of Norfolk Island was officially adopted on January 17, 1980. The Norfolk Island Council approved the design of the flag on June 6, 1979.
The Official Flag of Norfolk Islands features three vertical bands of green (hoist side), white, and green. A large green Norfolk Island pine tree (Araucaria heterophylla) is centered in the slightly wider white band of the flag. The green color of the flag symbolizes the rich vegetation on the island. The pine tree is endemic to the islands and is a symbol of Norfolk Island. The white color symbolizes peace and harmony between the people and the natural world. The flag has a height-to-width proportion ratio of 1:2.
The current official Coat of Arms of Norfolk Island was adopted on October 20, 1980. It features a shield. On the shield is a Norfolk Island Pine Tree placed on a rocky mount. The two stars on the shield refer to the Arms of Australia, New South Wales as well as the Arms of Captain James Cook – the discoverer of the Island. The two anchors and the naval crown represents the maritime history of the first settlers on the Norfolk and Pitcairn Islands. It also reflects the importance of seas and oceans in the history of these islands. The book on the shield stands for the Bible taken from HMS Bounty. Supporting the shield is a lion and a Kangaroo. The Lion symbolizes the Island’s historic ties with UK, New South Wales, and Tasmania. The Kangaroo alludes to the Island’s ties with Australia. The covered cup on the shield is taken from the arms of the founder of Pitcairn settlement – Fletcher Christian. The lion wears a laurel wreath obtained from the arms of Captain James Cook. The motto: “INASMUCH” is taken from the Gospel of Matthew (25:34).
"God Save the Queen" is the official national anthem as well as the royal anthem of Norfolk Islands. However, a local territorial anthem titled, "Come Ye Blessed" is usually sung at most of the ceremonies held on the island territory. The music has been composed by John Prindle Scott and the lyrics have been taken from the Gospel of Mattew (25: 34-36 & 40).
