Description of the flag and provide an image of the flag.
Some info for the flag:
The color of Jabat’s flag represents the sea surrounding the island. The white rays symbolize Jabat’s guiding light, Christianity, while the red rays symbolize their bravery & independence. According to Jabat folklore, the island’s ability to sustain itself is because of two sisters “Lajtokion” and “Lajtokrok”. According to the story, these girls would turn into white birds and would fly different directions, Lajtokion would fly to the north while her sister would fly to the south with their woven baskets and would gather food and deliver them back to Jabat. These girls or birds are also shown on the flag to represent Jabat’s sustainability. The placement of the star on the flag represents Jabat’s geographical location in the Marshall Islands as it is located in the center of the RMI.

Jabat Island flag was designed by Mrs. Mary Note, wife of long-time representative of Jabat Island, Kessai H. Note.
