The Pacific Games (formerly known as the South Pacific Games) is a multi-sport event, like the Olympics (but on a much smaller scale), with participation exclusively from countries around the South Pacific. It is held every four years and began in 1963.
The Pacific Games Council is the governing body of the games. With expansion and economic growth in the Pacific and Oceania countries of the Pacific Islands it was appropriate for the South Pacific Games Council to modernise and revise its charter in light of changes in the region and the changing place of Sport in society, thus the council adapted a new charter in 2007.
The new logo and flag were introduced on 1 November 2008. The flag is white with a blue wavy line and three discs over it representing three major regions of the Pacific.
