The official flag of Wallis and Futuna is the French national flag, as it is a French territory.

Description[edit]

The unofficial flag of Wallis and Futuna features a red saltire on a white square, which in turn is placed on a red field (alternatively, a larger white cross pattée is used). The cross is shifted a little off centre toward the fly (the cross pattée is also shifted slightly downwards); the flag of France outlined in white on two sides is in the upper hoist quadrant. For official occasions, the French flag is used.
