Solomon Islands lie in the eastern direction from New Guinea and to the west from the shores of Australia. The flag of the archipelago is composed of blue and green sections, where the fields are separated by a yellow diagonal stripe. In the upper left part of the blue box, a white five-pointed stars are located. The islands have not been colonized until the 19th century, but it eventually came under the British-German domination. In 1920, Australian ruled the islands and Solomon Islands have become independent in 1977. A year after, the current national flag has been adopted. The stars denote five island territories; blue represents the ocean, yellow the local bright sun and green fertile land.

The Solomon Islands archipelago is made up of nearly 1,000 tropical islands scattered across the southwestern Pacific, just to the east of Papua New Guinea. The remote location has kept the islands an unspoilt gem of a travel destination, with a slowly developing tourist industry.

The main islands to visit are Guadalcanal, Malaita, Choiseul, New Georgia, San Cristobal and Santa Isabel. The capital of Honiara, on Guadalcanal, is also well worth some time, with a museum, botanical gardens and its very own Chinatown. Villages and scenic drives are within easy reach of the capital, as are the popular World War II battlefield tours and carving villages on the islands of Rennell and Bellona.

The Solomon Islands may not be that well known compared to other regional destinations, but this makes them all the more enticing for the adventurous traveller.
