GMT or UTC +12:00 Time Zone Flag = Piggy Time Zone Flag

As the Pig is the 12 sign of the Eastern Zodiac, it only makes sense that it represents the 12th hour time zone of the Eastern Hemisphere.  It is the first natural 24 hour time zones.  It is also the earliest time zone for the United States with Wake Island and Russia's Eastern tip.  Other nations that fall under the Piggy Flag include France's Wallis and Futuna, Nauru, Tuvalu, the Marshall Islands, and Western Kiribati. 

Colloquial names for Piggy Time include: New Zealand Standard Time, Wake Island Time, and Kamchatka Time.
