The South Pacific nation of Fiji has launched a competition for a new national flag. Fijians can submit their designs for Fiji's new national flag by e-mail, by post and by hand delivery. The competition is open to everyone. If you have an idea, do not be afraid to share it. Young people and schools are especially encouraged to take part.
You do not need a computer design program and you do not need to be a professional designer to make a submission. Sketches and drawings will be considered the same as electronic designs. All you need is pen, pencil and paper to participate. However, whatever format you choose, you are encouraged to submit your design in colour. Be sure to include your full name, address and contact details with your design. A written description that explains the different elements of your design and your reason for choosing them is also encouraged.
The deadline for submission is 4:30pm on Friday, 1 May 2015.
The new flag will be ready by October, the 45th anniversary of the country's independence.
