The flag of Djibouti consists of two horizontal bands of equal size. There’s a white band on top and a light blue band on the bottom. Positioned in the center of the white band is a red, five-pointed star, symbolizing the unity of the Djiboutian people. The blue band represents the sea and sky, while the white signifies peace and harmony.
On June 27, 1977, the country adopted its flag upon gaining independence from France. Despite its simplicity, the flag holds significant meaning. It serves as a powerful emblem of national identity and aspirations for peace and unity among the people of Djibouti.
