It is stated that it is the intention of the author to offend nobody for any controversy that could arise for this work. Please read carefully the following statements.

Disclaimer about design:

Due to limitations in image and color resolution native to ZX Spectrum, full accurate detail cannot be achieved to represent every flag at the small size of 3x2 character cells each.

Effort has been made to represent every flag as close as possible to their official designs, colors and heraldics, but there are cases which suffer unintended, more or less noticiable artifacts. Anyway, the goal is to provide recognizable miniatures of the flags in ZX Spectrum screen format.

Disclaimer about geography:

Usually, continents and oceans do not have natural borders to delimite them sharply when two are side by side. Thus, the concepts of 'continent' and 'ocean' are giving by convention.

For the purpose of this work, 'Oceania' is defined as the sum of the territories which are fully in the Australian continent plus the Eastern part of the New Guinea and Timor islands plus the archipielago of New Zealand plus the most part of the archipielagos in the Pacific Ocean from Artic to the Antarctica, except the archipielagos of Japan, Philippines and Indonesia (including the Western part of the New Guinea and Timor islands).

Any land within these boundaries ruled directly by American powers as of 2012 as being constituent part of their own territory by law (that is, not considered Overseas territories nor dependencies by such powers, namely the US state of Hawaii, Chilean Easter Island and the like), are not considered part of 'Oceania' but of 'The Americas' despite the fact they are far outside of Mainland American subcontinents.

By doing these exceptions, the author simply reflects some of the complexities of the current international geopolitical actual facts, which are far beyond his own will or personal tastes or inclinations.

The same way, 'other special areas' consist in various territories scattered along the whole World, which only have in common very unusual political status, along with major supranational organizations.

Disclaimer about politics:

These are the flags of countries and territories in Oceania used from 1982 to 2012. The concept of what a 'country' is is sometimes controversial depending upon context, so for the purposes of this work the author considered a 'sovereign country' is a self-governed territory which is a member or observer state of the United Nations as of 2012, and which have assigned an Internet top-level domain country code (TLDcc).

As other territories in the area can have, and often do, any other official status rather than 'sovereign countries' under the above definition, exceptions are grouped and noted in this list.

Another separate section lists flags of several territories of the World that cannot be considered true 'sovereign countries' meeting the above criteria, but they exist as 'de facto' states to some extent or degree of recognition as of 2012. The inclussion of these flags in this work does not imply recognition or support 'per se' by the author. Simply, they are exposed in other public available sources, and the author thinks there are no objetive reason to exclude them. The author declares to be himself neutral about any conflict related to the existence or current political status of these especial territories. 

Within every group, flags are sorted by TLDcc (Latin alphabet), except for territories which lack it, and in that case a unofficial proposal quoted by parenthesis is given, that follows the guidelines of the 'ISO 3166-1 alpha-2' standard and employs unassigned two-letter codes as of 2012. Territory names are given by their common name in English, except where ambiguity could arise.

Territories with no own flag are not listed, despite the fact they could have assigned an official TLDcc.
