New Caledonia has two official National flags: The Flag of France (French Tricolore) and The Kanak (indigenous Melanesian) Flag. Both the flags have equal status.

The Kanak (indigenous Melanesian) Flag was adopted by the Congress of New Caledonia on July 13, 2010.

The Kanak (indigenous Melanesian) Flag consists of three equal horizontal bands of blue (top), red, and green. A large yellow disk - with a diameter about two-thirds the height of the flag is shifted slightly to the hoist side. This large yellow disk is edged in black and displays a black fleche faitiére. The blue color of the flag symbolizes the sky and the oceans surrounding New Caledonia. The red color represents the blood spilled by the Kanaks in their struggle for independence, socialism and unity. The yellow disk symbolizes the sun and the black fleche faitiére symbol alludes to the native rooftop adornment. The flag has a height-to-width proportion ratio of 1:2.

Ô terre sacrée de nos ancêtres,

A labri des pins colonnaires,

A lombre des flamboyants,

Dans les vallées de tes rivières,

Leur cœur toujours est présent.

1st couplet

Oh sacred land of our ancestors,

The light which lights the way of our lives,

You invite them to pass on to us

Their dreams, their hopes, their desires.

In the shelter of the columnar pines,

In the shade of the flame trees,

In the valleys of your rivers,

Their heart is always there.

Chorus

Let us unite, let us become brothers,

No more violence, no more war.

Let us march, in confidence and solidarity,

For our country

2nd couplet

Land of speech and sharing,

You offer to a stranger,

In the tribe or in the village,

A place to rest.

You want to house tolerance,

Equity and respect,

Enfold them with your giant arms,

Oh Land of freedom.

[Chorus]

Oh land of multiple faces,

North, South, Loyalty Islands,

Your three provinces are the image

Of your great diversity

We, your children, resemble you

Tempering our memory.

With a single voice, let us sing together:

Land, you are our future.

[Chorus]
