Whose flag is this?


THIS island state was annexed by Chile in 1888, but the flag was created in 1880 by the local population when it was planning to have a dialogue with the country about being a modern state.

The red object in the centre is known as a reimiro, which is a wooden pectoral ornament once worn by the local people, and at the edges of the reimiro are two anthropomo­rphic figures which represent chiefs, or nobles.

Do you know which island’s flag this is?
