Flag of Ducie Island

Ducie Island is located in the South Pacific and was claimed by the United States in 1867 under the Islands Guano Act.  However the United Kingdom also laid claim to this island.  Currently as of 2012 this smallest of specks on earth is still uncertain.  The UK rules it as a part of the Pitcairn Islands.  However the US has never fully relinquished her claim. 

The flag of this island is based on the US flag. It has a navy blue background and a yellow star by the lower hoist that is 'upside down.' Ducie Island is due south of Destruction-Green Island of Washington State.
