Geographic Wellington, New Zealand Flag: 174 Degrees East 41 Degrees South

The Geographic flag of Wellington, New Zealand is a perfect fly-hoist match to star.  Because the colours of the fly and hoist repeat in the colours of the stars.  With these flags, colours are coded to numbers.  And these numbers related to longitude and latitude.  In this case 174 Degrees East by 41 Degrees South. 

The central yellow pentagon indicates an Eastern Longitude, while the upside down dominant star indicates a Southern Parallel.
