The Torres Strait Islander Flag was created as a symbol of unity and identity for Torres Strait Islander peoples, designed by the late Bernard Namok from Thursday Island. It was the winning entry from a design competition held as part of a Cultural Revival Workshop, organised by The Islands Co-ordinating Council in January 1992. The flag was recognised by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission in June 1992 and given equal prominence with the Aboriginal flag. In July 1995, it was recognised by the Australian Government as an official ‘Flag of Australia’ under the Flags Act 1953.

Each part of the flag is designed to represent something about Torres Strait Island
culture: Green: Represents the land; Blue: Represents the sea; White: Represents peace; and Black: Represents the Indigenous peoples
