In days past, Ngatpang was known as a pottery-making village. Abundant clay found in the hillsides was fashioned into water storage jars and a unique clay lamp which burned coconut oil. The state flag shows this clay lamp surrounded by a type of vine found here (source "Oltobed A Malt", Belau National Museum).
