  • everybody Welcome back to flag slash man Friday.

  • I hope you like the Paulao episode would hope you gave it and ah, Paul louse.

  • Thank you.

  • I am Thurston from Instagram.

  • For that joke, I kind of stole it from you and I'm giving you credit.

  • By the way, Geography now T shirts.

  • Get them a geography now dot com It's not selling out if it's my product, any who, As you know, there's a part where we either fix up the small mistakes in the episode or talk about things that didn't quite make it into the episode.

  • For one.

  • When I was talking about why they speak Japanese, I meant to say, World war slash the Japanese empire, not World War Two.

  • What kind of lead into World War Two In the political animation, I meant to say, Papa.

  • New Guinea is sometimes considered part of Australasia, partially because it shares the same continental shelf as Australia.

  • But a lot of people consider Austral Asia, Australia and New Zealand, even in New Zealand, doesn't share the continental shelf.

  • It's confusing, and also I forgot to mention the fact that they had a railway that was built by the Japanese during Japanese Empire Times.

  • It is not in use today, but you can still see the tracks, and it's kind of like a fun little site that you can check out.

  • And we were going to have some native Palau wins, do a video.

  • I told some people to record themselves that they just didn't have time and didn't work out.

  • I'm sorry, but I wish they could have sent in the video.

  • In any case, there's a lot of other things we could've mentioned.

  • If you know of anything, feel free to put in the Commons.

  • Otherwise, let's begin without further, do you?

  • It's always great to do Pacific Island nations on what you think about finally meeting.

  • Hannah's husband, Ian, is a great guy.

  • It's weird.

  • They're kind of like alternate universe versions of Caleb and Gillian.

  • Anyway, Palau has a flag, and we kind of have to talk about.

  • The flag of Palau is a blue banner with a yellow disk in the center.

  • Pretty simple.

  • So much of the flags of Japan and Bangladesh.

  • But like Bangladesh, that disk is a little off center, so that while waving it gives off the image of a center disk.

  • The bright blue field, of course, represents the ocean and the nation's position in it, as well as the transition from a Dominion to a self governing state.

  • The yellow disk in the center actually represents the moon, not the sun, a full moon, to be exact, the full moon ties into their culture.

  • The reason being because the time during a full moon is considered the optimum time for human activity, such as in fishing, sowing, harvesting and tree felling and canoe carving.

  • It is also a symbol of peace, love and tranquility.

  • Many might say that it is suggested that the Palau and Flag got its inspiration from the rising sun flag of Japan, symbolizing the friendship between the two countries.

  • However, the designer of the flag, John Blouse Cabe Ong, has denied the connections are if I butchered his name, given my prior to this there under various other nation states and empire flags, the most recent one being the USA as a trust territory, had six stars representing all of the Micronesian island states that they had under their trust territory.

  • That's where Micronesia gets their flag from.

  • We explain this already and of course today they are a compact free association state with the U.

  • S.

  • A.

  • We already talked about it in the video otherwise prior to World War Two.

  • There under the Japanese both as a South Pacific mandate and an Imperial Navy occupied state, and are two that they're under the Germans under German New Guinea.

  • They're part of the Philippines under the first Philippine Republic.

  • Before breaking away, we mentioned in the video as well, and prior to that there under the Spanish under the Spanish East Indies and now we move on to the Palau State seal.

  • The seal contains a disc showing a traditional by house that we talked about in the Palau episode, used as community meeting structures in Palau in society, with a banner in English reading Official Seal waving over the house.

  • At the bottom of the house lie 16 stone symbolizing the 16 states of Palau and the year 1981 symbolizing the year of becoming a trust territory which many see as the beginning of the independence movement.

  • On the bottom in English are the words Republic of Palau, whereas on the top lies the words in the Palau and language will Bill era Cholula, which is the name of the national Congress, that translates to the House of whispered Decisions.

  • Now keep in mind, the state seal also does kind of common a few other different forms with slight differences, especially on embassies, for example.

  • Some of them contain palm fronds on the side.

  • The by house has a lot more detail with images and patterns, and some of them have the circle divided into four symbol on the sides of the seal representing wealth we talked about in the episode as well.

  • But yeah, as a sovereign state, this is pretty much the only steal that they've had.

  • That pretty much does it.

  • And that means you know what time it is.

  • It's time for geography.

  • Fan mail time.
