Cato Island Flag, Australia

The Geographic flag for Cato Island, Australia has a background of red and blue, and the colours are coded to numbers.  In this case they mean 155.  Since five is repeated it forms a larger block.  The star in the center reveals the latitude of 23 Degrees South.

For these types of flag the colours are linked to numbers, based upon the order of the rainbow.  Red is 1; orange is 2, yellow, is 3, and blue is 5.  Thus the field reads as 155 Degrees East by 23 Degrees South. The front star pointing down indicates a Southern Parallel, while the yellow pentagon indicates the Eastern Hemisphere.
