Papua (was Irian Jaya) was recently offered a wider autonomous status - last
week if I'm not wrong. But the council of "native" people/tribes rejected that
offer, since its basic demand - that is 100% independency - wasn't issued. Two
items mentioned in that offer are Irian Jaya will be called Papua and the widely
used flag of Papua (blue and white lines, red triangle, and white star) is recognized
and can be use as cultural symbol rather than a political movement symbol.

The flag will not be the one with a red triangle but with a red transverse
stripe, I guess.

Similar to a lot of the provincial flags, the flag for Papua is their emblem on a mono-colored background. In this case, it is blue.
