The flag of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands was first created in 2003; the flag was adopted on April 6, 2004. It was designed by Mohd Isa Minkom. 
The palm tree represents the islands' tropical flora; the colours are Australia's national colours; the crescent represents Islam, the religion of the Cocos Malays who make up a majority of the population; and the Southern Cross is a symbol of Australia and the Southern Hemisphere.
