French Polynesia consists of five island groups: The Society Islands; The Marquesas Archipelago ("Hiva"); The Tuamotu Archipelago; The Austral Islands; and Mangareva (also known as the Gambier Islands). The five stars on the flag represent these five divisions. A similar flag for Mangareva is in use with horizontal white-light blue-white equalsized parallel stripes with five stars on it. Mangareva is, however, the smallest unit of the French Territory in both population and size.
