Bosnia and Herzegovina has a flag with a white background and a wide vertical band on the left side that contains a yellow isosceles triangle. The upper part of the band is blue, and the lower part is blue with a series of white five-pointed stars arranged in a triangular pattern.
The blue triangle represents Bosnia and Herzegovina’s three major ethnic groups: Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs. The stars represent Europe, and the white color of the stars, as well as the flag itself, symbolize peace. The white background represents neutrality.
The design of the flag was adopted on February 4, 1998, after Bosnia and Herzegovina gained independence from Yugoslavia in 1992. The flag was chosen to represent the unity of the country’s diverse population and to symbolize its aspirations for peace and stability.
