The current flag shows 40 stars surrounding a coconut palm. The use of the
coconut palm represents the dependency of the residents upon coconut resources.
Around 1993, the flag was for Chuuk or Truk was changed. The number of stars
was increased to 40 following the creation of two new municipalities.
