About This Item
Tonga, officially the Kingdom of Tonga is a sovereign state and an archipelago in the South Pacific. It is comprised of 176 islands scattered over 270,000 sq mi of ocean. The flag of Tonga was adopted in 1875. The Tonga Flag is red in color with a white quarter at the upper left corner on the hoist-side of the flag. The white quarter bears a red cross placed at the center. The Red Cross is very much symbolic of the coming of Christianity to Tonga islands. The color red in the Tonga flag also represents the blood of Christ and his sacrifice. The white quarter symbolizes purity.
The flag looks similar to the flag of the Red Cross. The flag was originally identical to that flag, but to avoid confusion, it was changed so that the red cross appeared as a canton of a red ensign, making it similar to the 17th-century English Red Ensign.
