Fiji’s New Flag Faces More Delay

The decision on Fiji’s new flag has again been put off by the Fijian Government for another two months after the process was delayed by Fijian Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, by six months in June. It is now expected at the end of February next year.

This has come about since the government has received new submissions after it released 23 designs earlier this year, but is still seeking more.

Five designs will be chosen in March through the Prime Minister’s office then the public will have three months to select one.

The new flag is expected to be announced on 1st July which will be raised on the country’s Constitution Day on September 7th.

This plan to change the country’s flag was first floated in February, which faced wide spread opposition in which Mr Bainimarama planned it to be raised on the country’s 45th anniversary last October.
