Fiji citizens urged to buy up the flag before regime bans them

Fiji flag: synonymous with the struggle for democracy.


Fiji citizens are being urged to snap up all available flags before the regime bans them ahead of introducing its one.

The former Opposition leader and the president of the  United Peoples Party, Mick Beddoes, says given its actions people can expect the regime to issue a decree banning the current flag as soon as its reveals its replacement.


Beddoes says the current Fiji flag can become the people’s symbol of opposition and resistance leaving the regime's flag to symbolize 'oppression and evil.'



Frank Bainimarama, the country's self-appointed prime minister, announced in his New Year Day speech that Fiji would get a new flag to coincide with a new Constitution, to symbolise a new identity, one of unity.


Cunningly, the regime is to hold a competition to find its so-called winning new flag, thereby claiming the people were involved and chose the design of the flag themselves.


The current flag features the red, white and blue Union Flag of Britain in the top left-hand corner with the shield from the Fiji coat of arms on the right side. 


New bank notes were introduced recently by the regime, rejecting Queen Elizabeth for fauna and flora. The flag is expected to go the same way and remove traces of its ties with Britain.


Beddoes is urging people not to wait and to get their flags as soon as possible.

I'd say, bugger them, I don't know why we talk too much but doing nothing? Its a camel trying to force it self into a tent, well let tell you, their whole body is almost inside, they will surely throw us out, at the moment they're running the country, very soon they'll own the country.

This Kaiyum fellow is stopping at nothing, he will not stop, he knows if he'd slow down he'll lose the lot. Bless you all, God bless Fiji

Fiji is a republic and has nothing to do with Great Britian. On 14th May 1987 one Sitiveni Rabuka broke that link. He at that time was supported by Taukei Movement, The losers-Allinance Party and people like Tattifalla, Vutaki Meo and Ki-Bau. Blame them not Bainimarar. From 1987 Fiji people are sufferring. The country has gone down the hill. So many lives have been destroyed. Had these Nationalists not acted as war lords our country would have made great progress from Dr Bavadra Government. It is Dr Bavadra's curse that has been affecting fiji. The way he was toppled. The nationalists are responsible for it.

@Vula Nadamu alias Kamlesh Kumar, Jaleb Dean blah blah blah.
You are one confused loser.

You worshiping Bai and Inoke Kubuabola, both used to be Nationalist. Now they are Selfish-list.Both just thinking about themselves and not the people.

Bainimarama says Racial Equality, but how many Indians has he recruited into the Fiji Army since 2006?

Open your eyes you blind fool!

The pro-regime arseholes are always MISSING the point. We don't mind changing the flag but it has to be done with the consensus of Fiji Citizens. Understood... you pro-regime dummies ululallas.

Another episode like constitution will happen. Millions will be spent in getting people to submit but in the end he will declare some decree saying flag needs to contain some silly design and he will pick or even design it himself.

Anonymous said...

I think he has requested the change because he has imported the current flag and is trying profit from people buying it before it becomes obsolete. Folks don't buy into this and do not submit and drawings. If must the submit with the Union Jack. That will confuse the hell out of him.

Vula Nadamu, I haven' seen a dumb gets dumber, are you out of your mind? Which side are you on anyway? I don't think you belong to this blog, so nick off,

Fiji is uniting now more than ever, and we're trying to move forward in peace and harmony, not at the barrel of a gun or threats from the bulshit military,

There is a saying that goes, a soldier is not a soldier until he goes to war, if that is the truth, what that will make out of our military? Just bunch of armies doing it tough for a living,

Nadamu, you're taking us backward you poofter, stop poluting this site. And please get a life.

Mick's sentiments should be supported but as stated on the Fiji Today blog it truly is astounding how the illegal & treasonous regime can have the means and the head-space to carry out this huge undertaking amidst every other fire they're currently battling.

A new flag is simply not a mere matter of a graphic artists creation. Many other things need to change such as all official stationary from letterheads, to receipts to legal forms, here and abroad. Then you need to patent it. Its all going to cost the taxpayer a pretty penny as this juvenile knee jerk reaction was probably not factored into the 2013 budget.

Then we need to ask whether Fji's coat of arms needs to change as well. It would be interesting to know what the RFMF and our war veterans think about this move given that many honourable sons of Fiji shed blood and laid down their lives for our flag -- only to see it trampled upon by people who have no idea about the gravity of their actions. What do sportsmen/women who freely invested lood, sweat and tears towards the glory of our flag think? What do our global high achievers striving for pride in this flag think? What will our school children learning about our proud history and raising the flag with hands over their hearts think?

We're into our 7th year of tyrannical rule folks. We have to defend our flag and everything that it stands for. Our nation has been bastardized enough under Bainimarama & Khaiyum.

Please get the campaign going.

As a visiting Englishman I do not want my flag or my chief the Queen on anything to do with a dictator coup leader.

I would like the new flag to be one like the pirates flag. This is because Fiji has been pirated by Voceke and Aiyarse, freedom, money, rights, etc. These two are pirates and like pirates in Somalia, they need to be hunted down.

Change the Fiji flag? Change the Fiji currency? Change the name, so that we are all Fijians?
How about FIRSTLY changing their badges of rank that they CURRENTLY wear? It is after all very, very BRITISH!!

I think i know what design will be on the new fiji flag.

Blue flag with 4 small and 1 large star, borrowed from chinese flag.

To comemorate chinese ties with fiji, and sever British ties.

Seems like Bai and Khai are getting millions in special treatment to/from china

How can people who wants to stand for the election to gather 5,000 signatures in 28 days? Khaium cotinues to formulate new decrees each time the politicians want to make a move.Fiji people are still under restrictions, no freedom at all, they show themselves as lamulamus.They are thieve,killers, how can they be qualified to stand up for elections.

Anonymous said...

My dear tattifalla, this is the first time I'll have to disagree with a post of yours - quote about majority of terrorists. That record for the world's majority of terrorists is still held by the LTTE or Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka. They were obliterated when the Sri Lankan army decisively brought to an end the almost 3 decade long civil war in 2009 - with tragic heavy losses borne by both sides, all Sri Lankans. So very sad.

Who Dares Wins @ keep the Faith 8.09 pm.
Very true matey. We must defend all that our forefathers have shed blood, sweat and tears for.My father fought in Solomons as a 19yr old. came alive in 1945 at the age of 23, was given a set of gardening tools on top of the 5 medals he earned in COMBAT during the campaign and sent to the village...now thats sacrifice.
KHAIYUM BAINIMARAMA TIKOITOGA put together dont measure in terms of sacrifice.
I for one stand with you to defend the freedom from opressive rule our forefathers shed their blood for.

Who Dares Wins said...

Vula Nadamu @ 6.06pm.
Your past makes you what you are today little fella. You have to go beyond 1987 to see the tremendous sacrifice our forefathers collectively made to give us the freedom we deserve.
My father fought in the Solomons during WW2, His younger brother carrried on the legacy during the Malayan campaign to free us of opression while your Papa toiled in the cane fields to our to build our economy.
I invite you to join me defend the freedom they worked so hard to give us,

Before a CEO joins a company or any staff joins or party gets elected, there is a selection process to see if the person is suitable for the job. Who did the selection of the two thugs currently making all the rules of the country?

People we need to seriously ask this question before we blindly accept any of past decree or future decree they shove down our throat.

Why do they keep on hiding from being transparent on financial matters? Why no audited accounts? Why no tax returns?

Questions that need answers before we any more changes. Stand up for your rights. This country belongs at all not the two.

2.Will you support multiparty cabinet?
3. Will you support renewal of native land leases?
4. Will you support that fiji indians be treated as equal citizens of fiji?
5. Will you support common roll?
6. Will you support indians in fiji called fiji-indian?
7. Will you support that sugar industry should be given priority again?
8. Will you support anti-corruption bill?
9. Will you support any nationality can become the PM in Fiji?
10. Above all will you support peace and progress in fiji?

Your answers will be appreciated. Dont be a limuri.

I am sure that this should be an issue as SDL is now dead,so why waste our time beating the dead horse?

It is now time to write the eulogy for SDL. Maybe they can reflect back and see where all they screwed up.

Ni Sa Moce SDL may you rest in peace.

Kamlesh kumari and Fijiana, what makes you morons think that SDL won't be back? You're dreaming, but wait and see after the elections, if there's going to be one.

We will see who is MORAN. Dream on baby or should I say that you should be ready for a rude awakening. Denial is of course human. So I understand where you are coming from.

The Realty is SDL is history. SDL is gone bye bye. Accept it Anon, Vutaki Meo alias Tattifalla alias Ki-Bau.

It's a pity because you've been brainwashed, conned, lied to etc, but what you hear from people isn't what they have in mind.

I think you need to accept the facts. I tend to agree with Fijiana. SDL has been gone for 6 years. Now all of a sudden they are waking up? We the Fijians need a real Leader. Not likes of Choodo and Qarase.

So I know speaking to people around Viti Levu, I know that SDA, UPP and FLP are DOA (Dead on Arrival)

Before we have any frieken election
we want the Native Land Trust Board
to collect all the unpaid back-rent
for all Fijian land from indo tenants? Those who can't meet their
obligation to pay back-rent than
they should be removed from the land ASAP. This way we
can all have a fresh start? Also
whoever wins the election must first introduced the Qoliqoli &
Reconciliation bills ASAP.
