Flag for the Senkaku or Diaoyu or Diaoyutai Islands
The geographic latitude and longitude flag for the Senkaku or Diaoyu or Diaoyutai Islands uses a tribar of red, orange, and yellow. The three names of the islands are due to the three current claims on them by Japan, China, and Taiwan.
The central stars represent numbers of latitude. The dominant star is orange, coded to 2, while the lesser star is green, coded to 4 - since green is the fourth colour of the rainbow. The dominant star also represents to 10s column of latitude, while the lesser star represents to 1s column of latitude. Finally the dominant star is pointing upwards, indicates a northern line of latitude.
