Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
The plate’s a great gift for those that have done this great challenge
KOKODA – The Kokoda Track or Trail is a single-file foot thoroughfare that runs 96 kms overland – (60 kms in a straight line) – through the Owen Stanley Range in Papua New Guinea. The track was the location of the 1942 World War II battle between Japanese and Allied – primarily Australian – forces in what was then the Australian territory of Papua.
The track runs from Owers’ Corner in Central Province, 50 km east of Port Moresby, across rugged and isolated terrain which is only passable on foot, to the village of Kokoda in Oro Province. It reaches a height of 2,490 metres as it passes around the peak of Mount Bellamy. The track travels primarily through the land of the Mountain Koiari people. Hot, humid days with intensely cold nights, torrential rainfall and the risk of endemic tropical diseases such as malaria make it a challenging trek. Hiking the trail normally takes between four and twelve days; the fastest recorded time is 16 hours 34 minutes.

The flag of PAPUA NEW GUINEA was adopted on 1 July 1971. In the hoist, it depicts the Southern Cross; in the fly, a raggiana bird-of-paradise is silhouetted. The designer of the flag was 15-year-old schoolgirl Susan Karike, now Mrs Susan Huhume, who won a nationwide competition for a new flag design in 1971. Red and black have long been traditional colours of many Papua New Guinean tribes. Black-white-red was the colour of the German Empire flag, which had colonised New Guinea prior to 1918. The bird-of-paradise is also found on the national coat-of-arms. Prior to independence, the Australian administration proposed a vertical tricolour flag with blue, yellow and green bands, along with the bird of paradise and southern cross, designed by a Mr Holman. It had a mainly negative reception, due to its appearance as that of a "mechanically contrived outcome", thus the alternative proposal attributed to Susan Karike was chosen instead. The blue was said to represent the sea and islands of New Guinea, the Southern Cross was a guide for the travelling peoples, the gold represented the coastlines, mineral wealth, and unity, and the green represented the forested highlands and mainland, with the Bird of Paradise representing the unification under one nation. The Southern Cross shows that it is a country in the Southern Hemisphere and can be seen in Papua New Guinea. NOTE: There are four countries which (in English) have the word 'Guinea' in their name: Republic of Equatorial Guinea - for this flag click HERE Republic of Guinea - for this flag click HERE Republic of Guinea-Bissau - for this flag click HERE Independent State of Papua New Guinea- that is the flag on this page 'Guinea' is a term which historically refers to a region of West Africa. The countries of Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Equatorial Guinea all lie in this region, which is why the word 'Guinea' is in their name. Papua New Guinea, on the other hand, is a country in the southwest Pacific. It was called 'New Guinea' because early European explorers thought it resembled the Guinea region of Africa and so they named it after that region. The term 'Guyana' (such as the country 'Guyana' and the French territory 'French Guiana') is not related to the term Guinea -- although they do sound similar! Flags come in various types as described below and sizes are commonly referred to in feet rather than metres, so please read about the various types of flag below and then make your selection from the drop down menu Decorative Flags: These have 2 grommets on LHS sleeve and are printed on polyester which makes for a lightweight flag with a variety of uses such as flying on indoor poles or wall décor. They are great for supporting favourite sports team; decoration in parades, marches and occasional flying on an outdoor flagpole. We emphasise these flags are not designed for prolonged flying on flagpoles as sun and wind would affect the lightweight material very quickly. There are two common sizes in decorative flags which are 5x3ft (150x90cm) and the smaller 3x2ft (90x60cm) Outdoor Flagpole Flags: These are a ‘trilobal’ material which is a knitted polyester for outdoor flag use which is long life, open weave, quick wicking and drying Note this is knitted polyester and not a woven polyester, with the latter being weaker and lighter fabric unsuitable for outdoor use. Our flags have double-stitched hems, and sewn loops so that you can attach Sista clips to secure them to the pole’s cords. The most common sizes in outdoor flags is 6x3ft (180x90cm) Sista Clips for Outdoor Flagpole Flags: The correct name is Inglefield clip or Brummel hook but commonly known as sister or sista. It’s a plastic clip for joining a flag or ensign quickly, easily and securely to flag halyards so that the flag can be hoisted. Each clip resembles a link of chain, with a split through one side. Hand Held Flags: These are printed on lightweight polyester with 2ft (60cm) plastic or wooden stick. They have a variety of uses such as parades, marches or supporting favourite sports team.
