Politics

According to the 1979 Constitution, the Federated States of Micronesia is a presidential federal republic consisting of the constituent states of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap. The president is also head of government and is elected by Congress for four years. The congress is directly elected as a unicameral parliament with 14 members. Four members are elected as representatives of each member state for four years, the remaining ten members for two years according to the ratio of the population of the individual states. On the basis of the Compact of Free Association, which came into force on November 3, 1986, the USA is responsible for foreign and defense policy.

National symbols

The national flag was first hoisted on November 30, 1978. Its medium blue hue is modeled on the flag of the UN, which administered the archipelago as a mandate area. The four cross-shaped, five-pointed white stars symbolize the member states.

The circular coat of arms dates back to 1979 and is actually a state seal that, when laid out in color, is considered the state coat of arms. A wavy line divides it into an upper light blue and a lower dark blue half. The six waves symbolize the originally six member states of the UN trust area (founded in 1974). In the middle part is a coconut with four green leaves, which are surrounded at the top by four white five-pointed stars (symbol for today’s four states). In the lower part of the coat of arms there is the inscription “Peace, Unity, Liberty” in green on a white band, underneath the year 1979. The national coat of arms is surrounded by a white ring with the designation “Government of the Federated States of Micronesia” (Government of the Federated States of Micronesia).

The national holiday is November 3rd. He commemorates the achievement of independence in 1986.
