Statesman Tie’s New Fiji Tie was designed to represent the flag of Fiji. The design takes elements from the Fijian flag and mixes them together to create a tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
We decided to use a bright blue background to represent the ocean. The red, white and blue stripes come from the Union Jack on the flag. We used the Fijian shield from the flag and added it into the corner of the tie to make it uniquely and specifically the Fiji Tie. Something simple and classy.
Regarding the flag specifically: “The flag’s bright blue background symbolizes the Pacific Ocean, which plays an important part in the lives of the islanders, both in terms of the fishing industry, and the huge tourist trade. The Union Jack reflects the country’s links with the United Kingdom. The shield is derived from the country’s coat of arms, which was granted by Royal Warrant in 1908. It is a white shield with a red cross and a red chief (upper third of a shield). The images depicted on the shield represent agricultural activities on the islands, and the historical associations with the United Kingdom. At the top of the shield, a British lion holds a cocoa pod between its paws. The upper left is sugar cane, upper right is a coconut palm, the lower left a dove of peace, and the lower right a bunch of bananas.” (Source, here.)
The Fiji Tie is a great gift for missionaries, businessmen, and anyone who loves Fiji.
You can even add a personalized embroidered message on the back on the tie that the wearer will be sure to love!
