Flag for Trindade and Martim Vaz: 29 Degrees West by 20 Degrees South

Trindade and Martim Vaz are small isles in the middle of the Atlantic owned by Brazil.  This is the Metric Grid flag for their latitude and longitudes coded to colours.  It includes the colours orange, white, pink, and black.  The tribar of white, orange, and pink indicate a longitude of 029 degrees.  Its Western designation is indicated by the central white pentagon.  The dominant five pointed star that is orange indicates 20 while the lesser white star indicates 0, thus the latitude is 20 degrees.
