Flag of Djibouti

The national flag of Djibouti (Somali: Calanka Jabuuti, Arabic: علم جيبوتي‎, French: Drapeau de Djibouti) features two equal horizontal bands of blue (top) and green with a white isosceles triangle based on the hoist side bearing a red, five-pointed star (representing the areas Somalis live in the region) in the center.

These five areas are British Somaliland and Italian Somaliland (Somalia), French Somaliland (Djibouti), the Ogaden, and the Northern Frontier District. The colors used can be seen to symbolize the earth (green), the sea and sky (blue) and peace (white), with the red star representing unity. It was hoisted on the day of the independence of Djibouti on 27 June 1977. There is a red five-pointed star on Djibouti's white triangle.
