Indonesia, located in Southeast Asia, is a nation consiting of over 13,000 islands (some publications cite more than 17,000 islands). Only 6000 of these islands are inhabited. The islands spread between the Indian and Pacific oceans, linking the continent of Asia and Australia. The main islands are Sumatera (473,606 sq.km), Kalimantan (539,460 sq.km), Sulawesi (189,216 sq.km), Irian Jaya (421,981 sq.km), and Java (132,187 sq.km). Indonesia shares the islands of Kalimantan with Malaysian, and Irian with Papua New Guinea.
The name Indonesia is composed of two Greek words: "Indos" which means Indian and "nesos" which means islands.
Indonesia's flag has two colors; red and white. (Just like the banner of this page.) The red stands for bravery, and white for purity and truth.
