Based on a personal
web site at http://www.users.quest.net/~rae.4332/flags.html (no longer
available), developed by an inhabitant of Palau, which shows the flags of all
the 16 states of Palau. The flag is blue, with
4 white stars in the upper fly and sail boat in the centre of the flag. According the census Sonsorol has an area of 3 sq. km, a population of
80 inhabitants, and the capital is Dongosaru.

http://pacificdigitallibrary.org, blue represents the Pacific Ocean. White
symbolizes peace. The four stars stand for the four islands forming Sonsorol.
They represent the Southern Cross, used by our ancestors as their navigation
guide to find our islands. The red canoe stands for the transportation means
used to discover our islands and an important use in our every day lives.
The four islands are Pulo Anna (Puro), Meriil (Melieli), Fanna and Sonsorol (Dongosaro).
