Useful Notes: Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands (not “THE Solomon Islands”) are almost a thousand islands east of New Guinea.

The country was a colony from the United Kingdom during a long time and it saw a lot of action during World War II (most famously, the Guadalcanal campaign). It declared independence in 1978, but ethnic tensions made it devolve into a civil war that ended in 2006 only with the ousting of the Prime Minister.

One of the few countries that doesn’t have a military force. On sports, their personal pride seems to be their beach soccer team. Best of Oceania!
The Solomon Islander flag
The blue and green halves symbolize the sea and the land, respectively, while the yellow strip between them stands for sunshine. At the canton are five white stars, symbolizing the islands.
