The national flag of 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 in the centre.
The five-pointed star represents the five areas of Somali population: British Somaliland (Republic of Somaliland/Somalia), Italian Somaliland (Somalia), French Somaliland (Djibouti), Ogaden (Ethiopia) and Northeastern Kenya. The colours used can be seen to symbolise the earth (green), the sea and sky (blue) and peace (white), with the red star representing unity.
