Eastern Highlands: Red and green triangles form the background. Inside a large yellow star in the centre, a legendary one-legged man named Nokondi holds a coffee branch (the province¹s main cash crop). The star has 6 points (for the six districts). It is surrounded by 8 smaller stars (for the local government councils). Source: PNG: A fact book on modern Papua New Guinea, Jackson Rannells, Oxford University Press (Melbourne), 1990.

A very minor point according to the cover of Rannells' book. The figure and coffee branch within the yellow star are shown as a black line drawing.

'Nokodi' brun foncé, feuilles dessinées en brun foncé. Fruits de café rouges.It seems it must be a dark brown line drawing then.
