made of a golden-yellow star on a field of deep sky blue background. Behind the
star, it has red stripe from the bottom left corner and to upright to the upper
right corner of the flag. The star stands for the unity of Ngaraard State, and
the five fingers of the star stands the five counties or hamlets of Ngaraard (Choll,
Elab, Ngebuked, Ulimang and Ngkeklau). The stripe of the flag shows that the
state has both the east and west coast of northern Babeldaob and is striving for
success. The blue background symbolizes the blue of the sky and ocean
surrounding the Ngaraard State.
