Flag of Djibouti

The flag of Djibouti 🇩🇯, which was used for the first time during the declaration of independence in 1977, consists of two horizontal stripes in blue and green colors and a white wedge in the left part of the flag. Moreover, a red five-pointed star is located in the white wedge. The flag has been inspired by the flag of the National League for Independence, which established itself in the struggles for independence from France. Djibouti was known as Somaliland in colonial times. The blue color of the upper bar is typical of the Somali Issas and the green color of the lower bar represents the Muslim Afars. White triangle traditionally symbolizes peace and the red star symbolizes the unity of the Djibouti nation.
