Where can you find the most beautiful islands of Indonesia? Enough travelers know Bali, Java and Lombok, but you realize that there is so much more to be found in Indonesia. If we are to believe Wikipedia there are around 25,000 islands that together form the archipelago of Indonesia. 25,000! That is really a huge amount. So to say 1, 2, 3 which are the most beautiful islands of Indonesia takes some time. We have listed our findings below and are very curious if you agree that these are the nicest and most beautiful islands!
The enormous diversity of landscapes is a result of climatic and geological factors. For example, the islands of West Indonesia have always been covered with dense tropical rain forests, while the East Indonesian islands are much drier with even savannah landscapes. The largest part of Indonesia consists of low-lying coastal areas and coral reefs.
The ecological balance in the rainforest is seriously threatened by human activities or the consequences thereof. For example, logging takes place on a large scale, resulting in increasing erosion. In 1997, huge fires of rainforest were lost due to forest fires. The remaining forest area of Indonesia covers approximately 60% of the total land area. This mainly concerns around 100 million hectares of tropical rainforest, the largest jungle area on earth after Brazil.
The Indonesian coat of arms is called the Garuda Pancasila and consists of a Garuda with a shield on its chest. This shield shows the five principles of Indonesian national philosophy. The shield was designed by Sultan Hamid II of Pontianak  and has been in use since 11 February 1950.
The Garoeda has seventeen feathers on each wing, eight tail feathers and 45 neck feathers. Together it brings the independence day that Indonesia has: 17 August (the eighth month) (19) 45. The banner that holds the Garuda in its claws reads: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. What freely translated means “Unity in diversity” but can be more literally represented as “(Although) divided into pieces, yet one”.
The Pancasila is symbolized on the chest of the Garuda:
the closed chain
the waringin tree
the rice neck and cotton branch
The flag of Indonesia, also called Sang Merah Putih, is a simple two-tone flag with two equal horizontal bands, red (top) and white (bottom). This makes it almost the same as the flag of Monaco (the difference lies in the aspect ratio and color tone). The flag has been in use since August 17, 1945, the day the Indonesian government regards as Independence Day. The flag has not changed since then.
