The black and white colors represent good and bad. In PNG there’s a lot of good

we can offer but it seems like the bad things always outweigh the good. The white lines represent good paths people are taking while the black lines represent pathways

to corruption, ignorance and manipulation. The red drops represent the life of all Papua New Guineans. The gold line in the middle represents the abundant resources that are yet to reach full potential. The four neon yellow lines represent the young generations of the four regions of PNG, a sign of hope.
