Flag of the Comoros (GIF)

The national flag of the Comoros (Arabic: علم جزر القمر; French: Drapeau des Comores) 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 flag, with its striking design and colors, effectively captures the cultural diversity, religious significance, and the collective identity of the Comorian people.

The seal of the Comoros is a symbolic representation of the nation's identity and values. Positioned prominently at the center is a crescent, a traditional emblem of Islam, complemented by four five-pointed stars, echoing elements from the national flag. Behind the crescent, a depiction of the sun with its radiant rays adds further symbolism. The central elements are encircled by the country's official name, "Union of the Comoros," inscribed in both French and Arabic. Surrounding the inner design, two olive branches signify peace and harmony, while the national motto, "Unité, Solidarité, Développement" (Unity, Solidarity, Development), displayed in the lower section, emphasizes the nation's commitment to unity, cooperation, and progress. Collectively, the seal encapsulates the nation's religious heritage, unity, and aspirations for growth and prosperity.
