The 10 stars on the flag represent the main islands of the nation (a chain of islands off the coast of West Africa). The blue represents the ocean and the sky. The band of white and red represents the road toward the construction of the nation, and the colors stand for peace (white) and effort (red).

The stripes are in 6:1:1:1:3 ratio, and the circle of stars is centered 3/8 along the fly.
