The flag of Cape Verde consists of a rectangular shape with five horizontal stripes of equal width, with the top and bottom stripes being blue in color, and the remaining stripes being white, red, and yellow. A circle with ten yellow five-pointed stars arranged in a circle resides in the center of the red stripe.

The blue stripes represent the ocean and the sky, while the white stripe represents peace. The red stripe represents the struggle for independence. The yellow stripe represents the country’s wealth in minerals and natural resources. The ten stars represent the ten islands that make up Cape Verde.
