The flag of Seychelles has been adopted in 1996 and it consists of five rays expanding from the lower corner of the left part of the flag. The color sequence of the stripes is from left to right as follows: blue, yellow, red, white, and green. These colors are meant to symbolize a fresh and courageous approach of this young country towards the future. The blue color represents the sea and the sky and yellow stands for local sharp sun rays.

The color spectrum also contains colors of every Seychelles political party.
