The National Flag of Duwamish, also known as The Lone Pine, 론 파인 트리 (Korean for "pine alone"), is a horixontal triband flag with a dark green circle in its center, featuring a stylized pine tree. Its adoption in 1963 marked the first time a national flag had been officially adopted in the Republic of Duwamish to replace the U.S. flag. The Duwamish Blue Ensign had been unofficially used since 1963 and was approved by a 1966 session of the Duwamish Senate for use "wherever place or occasion may make it desirable to fly a distinctive Duwamishite flag". In 1988, outgoing one-term President Peter Giovanni appointed a committee to resolve the issue, sparking a debate about a flag change. Out of two choices, the lone pine design by Xavier Johnston III was selected. The flag made its first appearance on February 2, 1989; the date is now celebrated annually as National Flag of Duwamish Day.
