and Dependencies", then simply as the "Territory of New Caledonia" (French: Territoire de la Nouvelle-Calédonie), the official French name is now only Nouvelle-Calédonie (Organic Law of 19 March 1999, article 222 IV — see.
Since 1986 the United Nations Committee on Decolonization has included New Caledonia
on the United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories. New Caledonia
is set to decide whether to remain within the French Republic as an autonomous overseas collectivity or become an independent state in a referendum to be held between 2014 and 2019., BBC News, 11 December 2008
Nouméa, the capital, is also the seat of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (formerly the South Pacific Commission), an international organization.
In July 2010, New Caledonia
adopted the Kanak flag, alongside the existing French tricolor, as the dual official flags of the territory. The adoption made New Caledonia
one of the few countries or territories in the world with two official national flags.
