Flag of Kosovo

Flag of Kosovo

The flag of Kosovo consists of a blue leaf and a yellow map of the country in the middle of the flag. The use of a map as a central motif is truly unique, only Cyprus had a similar. Above the map, six white stars are placed where each represents one of the ethnic groups living in the territory of Kosovo - Albanians, Serbs, Turks, Gorani, Roma, and Bosnians. The flag has been officially adopted on 17 February 2008 - the day of declaration of independence. The flag was chosen in a public competition organized by the United Nations in cooperation with the transitional federal government and its author is Muhamer Ibrahimi. Prior to the declaration of independence, the UN flag was temporarily used.
