  • Everybody, welcome back to flag fan Friday. Hope you like the Nauru episode...

  • So, as you know, this is the part that I kinda talk about the things that didn't quite make it into the video.

  • For one, I said that Nauru was the only country without an official capital...

  • Technically, that's half true half kind of not true.

  • Switzerland does have a de facto capital Bern. Although it's not completely official but its de facto status

  • So it's kind of some people say it is but it's more of like a half capital - ish thing going on

  • But if you really want to be technical kind of yes is the Nauru only country but maybe Switzerland as well

  • It depends on how you look at it. Second of all, I forgot to talk about religion

  • The majority of people on Nauru are Christian about two-thirds of which are Protestant the largest denomination being the Nauru

  • Congressional Church, and you have Catholics Assemblies of God and about 10% still practice the original indigenous Nauruan religion.

  • [Barby hilariously slaughters the word a few times]

  • Forgot to talk about the traditional weaving pattern, I think Kokosfasern

  • I also forgot to mention that, out of the 12 tribes, only 10 still exist today two of them actually died out. And finally

  • The controversial topic of the detention centers. I forgot to mention that yes, there were a lot of protests,

  • it's a source of lots of controversy in both

  • Australia and Nauru and the world. A lot of people thought that the conditions there were not deemed as

  • acceptable as they could have been. People in the detention centres have also been known to protest as well; and it's just kind of like

  • A very tricky situation to deal with there's probably a few other things that I could have talked about

  • But if you want to say it just put it in the comments.

  • Otherwise, we got to move on time to go to the flag. So without further ado....

  • [Geography Now Flag/Fan Friday theme plays]

  • Nauru? Nauru. Crazy how it's just like the least visited country in the world...

  • Let me know if you've been to Nauru. I mean, yeah, not many people been there.

  • [stutters] You-you're one of the rare lucky few. But anyway, let's go on to the flag. Adopted shortly after independence,

  • The flag is essentially a map depicting the location of the actual island the blue, of course, representing the Pacific Ocean,

  • whereas the yellow line symbolises the Equator. The star

  • , of course, stands for the country of Nauru being situated just below the equator

  • The star is white to represent phosphate, the primary resource that they are known for, and the twelve points on the star

  • symbolise the twelve historic tribes of Nauru. Now, of course, prior to this flag, they had quite a few others. Throughout history before independence

  • They were under this weird like trusteeship between Australia and the UK both countries kind of had like authority over them

  • I guess...? Prior to that, for one year, there under Japan, then there were a British mandate and, prior to that,

  • it was the German Empire

  • Yeah...

  • Germany took a stab at this place. And prior to that there were pretty much no other national flags and they do have a coat

  • Of arms the image depicts a traditional shield with a woven background (divided into three parts) and the top upper part is an alchemical

  • symbol of phosphorus;and on the bottom left, a Frigate bird perched over an ocean with waves

  • Alluding to the tradition of trained frigate bird fishing in the bottom

  • Right, you have a branch of Calophyllum flowers native to the island.

  • the shield is surrounded by ceremonial tribal chief gear containing ropes, feathers, shark teeth and

  • palms. On the top, lies the 12- tribe star, just like on the flag, above it a banner reading "Naoero"

  • , the Micronesian name for Nauru, and at the bottom ,in English , reading "God's will first"

  • Yeah, that frigate bird training thing is really interesting. It's kinda like those fishers in South China

  • that use the (what are those birds?), like, the cormorants. Two people groups across the world ,thousands of miles away, they have the same idea...

  • what a world we live in!

  • So yeah, that's the only coat of arms they had, so we don't really have to talk about anything else in the meantime

  • You know what time it is... Geogra-Fanmail Time! Ah! [plays instrument]

  • Still love this thing...

  • Alright guys, so we're about to start, before we do, we need a guest star which means today's guest is gonna be... you know him,
