Flag of the Chatham Islands

The unofficial flag of the Chatham Islands (Wharekauri in Maori; Rekohu in the indigenous Moriori language) is a blue field with a map of the island in the centre, the Te Whanga Lagoon depicted in white. Behind this device map is a depiction of the rising sun, an allusion to its local name Rekohu, meaning 'rising sun'.
It was reported[by whom?] that at the 2005 opening of a new marae on the islands (which included a rare visit by the Prime Minister), the Chathams flag was clearly seen flying from a flagpole over the marae.
