Flag of Cape Verde (GIF)


The national flag of Cape Verde consists of a circle of ten yellow stars centered on the red stripe and slightly shifting from the center to the left, and five unequal horizontal lines: blue, white, red, white, and blue. The stars represent the main islands of the nation. Blue represents the ocean and the sky. The bands of white and red symbolize the road toward the construction of the nation. Also, colors mean peace (white) and effort (red). The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on September 22, 1992.

The national emblem with the Portuguese country name includes a plumb symbolizing righteousness, a torch and triangle symbolizing freedom and national unity, and palms symbolizing victory in the national struggle for independence.

The Cape Verde flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Cape Verde, officially the Republic of Cabo Verde, is an island country in the central Atlantic Ocean. Its capital is Praia, and its population is about 550,000.
