The colour brown represents the inland people and the blue represents the island people. The Chauka bird is only found in the Manus province. It is not found in any other place in PNG. The chauka bird heralds the coming of dawn and signals the going down of the sun BUT often warns us of dangers. It also informs us whether the hunting trip will be successful or not. And of course the NBC Radio Station in Manus had become "Maus Bilong Chauka" several years before. The other important symbol on the Manus Flag is the green snail. Like the Chauka, the green snail is unique to the Manus province.
