Flag of the Comoros (GIF)


The national flag of the Comoros consists of four horizontal stripes of yellow, white, red, and blue, with a green triangle on the hoist side charged with a white crescent and four stars. The colorful stripes and four stars represent the four islands of the Comoros. The yellow stripe represents Moheli, the white stripe represents Mayotte, the red stripe represents Anjouan, and the blue stripe represents the island of Grand Comore. The star, crescent, and green color symbolize Islam, which is the nation's major religion. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 3:5, and the flag was adopted on January 7, 2002.

The green national seal has a crescent moon and four stars, as in the flag, and also has a sun radiating from the center and two olive branches around it.

The Comoros flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
The Comoros, officially the Union of Comoros, is a sovereign archipelago nation in the Indian Ocean at the northern end of the Mozambique Channel on the eastern coast of Africa. Its capital is Moroni, and its population is about 874,000.
