Papua New Guinea created two new provinces - Jiwaka and Hela, effective 17th
of May 2012.

Yesterday evening (Melbourne, Aust. time) S.B.S. TV's "World News Australia"
reported the raising of the new P.N.G. Provincial Flag for Hela (formerly part
of Southern Highlands Province), as part of its coverage of the current national
elections. Video of this report can be viewed at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_qKBfRpLOg. Also, an online "PNG Courier Post" newspaper photograph of the other new P.N.G. Provincial Flag for Jiwaka (formerly part of Western Highlands Province) can be viewed at http://www.postcourier.com.pg/20120518/frhome.htm.
An article about these two new Papua New Guinea Provincial Flags, and background information, will be appearing in the near future in Flags Australia's journal "Crux Australis" later this year.

I have selected the frames from the movie
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_qKBfRpLOg and reconstructed from this
source the new flag of Hela Province.
