Flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina (GIF)

The national flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Serbo-Croatian: zastava Bosne i Hercegovine / застава Босне и Херцеговине) is a deeply symbolic design featuring a blue field with a yellow triangle that separates the field, and it is adorned with seven full white five-pointed stars and two half stars along the hypotenuse of the triangle. The three points of the triangle symbolize the three main ethnic groups, or "constituent peoples," of Bosnia and Herzegovina: Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs. The triangle's shape represents the approximate outline of the country. The stars, signifying Europe, are intended to be infinite in number, extending from top to bottom, symbolizing unity and inclusivity. The flag's color scheme—white, blue, and yellow—is associated with neutrality and peace and reflects Bosnian culture and history, while the blue background also draws a connection to the European Union flag, underscoring the nation's European ties.

The coat of arms of Bosnia and Herzegovina, much like the flag, features a design of a shield that mirrors the national flag's pattern. The shield displays five full white five-pointed stars and two half stars arranged along the hypotenuse of the yellow triangle, which is located at the upper right corner of the shield. The use of the three-cornered shield symbolizes the nation's three principal ethnic groups—Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs—emphasizing the idea of unity and coexistence among these communities. This emblem eloquently represents the nation's commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and peace among its various ethnic groups.
