The flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina πŸ‡§πŸ‡¦ has a very unusual shape. The right part of the flag is made up of vertical blue stripe and the central part is specific by a yellow triangle whose hypotenuse carries seven full and two half white five-pointed stars. The left part is filled with blue color. The blue color together with white stars should refer to the membership of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Council of Europe. The peaks of the triangle represent three nations - Croats, Serbs, and Bosnians. Blue, white, and yellow color are traditionally associated with peace and neutrality. The flag in its current form was adopted in 1998. Shortly after the declaration of independence from Yugoslavia, a white flag with the coat of arms of Tvrtko Kotromanic from 14th century was used.
