Flag of "EnenKio" (Wake Island)

EnenKio purports to be the native Marshallese name of Wake Island, an insular possession of the United States administered by the Department of the Interior. The claim of EnenKio's sovereignty is spelled out at, but see the cautionary information below.

Utilizing a format derived from the Marshallese Republic flag, yet distinct in its own right, the "royal" blue background, representing the vastness of Pacific Ocean waters surrounding the islands of EnenKio Atoll, is penetrated by two expanding diagonal "Rays" of color, depicting the two island chains of the Republic, our closest southern neighbor. The white ray stands for the Ratak Chain, the orange for the Ralik Chain; "sunrise" and "sunset" respectively. A single white star, symbolizing Eneen-Kio Atoll, stands at the pinnacle of the archipelago, as a jewel in the "crown" of the Monarch, one of the most treasured atolls of his ancestral heritage of the King's 10 atolls in the Ratak chain . The white color in the star stands for the dawning of the light of justice, freedom, prosperity and truth.

This link and flag was reported in April 1999. It figures prominently among the ImagiNations, as Wake Island does really exist. This flag is nearly stolen from the Marshall Islands, including the description, and might be classed alongside the Angolan PREA flag as a virtual flag. But of course I might be wrong. Perhaps the name EnenKio is an alternative name for Wake Island, I don't know.

I'd take this with caution. The last time I looked, this EnenKio Atoll (with this flag) was a micronation with no real existence.
Jorge Candeias, 16 November 1999

At best, the situation with EnenKio (although the local name appears to be correct) is a micronation, at worst, a potential fraud according to Marshall Island officials (Marshall Islands Journal, May 1, 1998). The Marshall Islands government has notified all countries with which it has diplomatic ties that the claims of the Kingdom of EnenKio are fraudulent. Reportedly, the only diplomatic ties that EnenKio has are with an entity calling itself the Dominion of Melchizidek (DoM). In 1999, the U.S. Comptroller of the Currency warned that the DoM had been involved in international fraud since 1990.
