Flag of Djibouti (GIF)

The national flag of Djibouti (Somali: Calanka Jabuuti, Arabic: علم جيبوتي, French: Drapeau de Djibouti) features two horizontal bands of light blue and green, with a white isosceles triangle based on the hoist side. The blue represents the sea and sky, reflecting the nation's connection to the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean, while the green symbolizes the abundant land and its significance to the country's natural resources and agriculture. These two colors also represent the ethnic groups of Somalis (blue) and Afars (green). The white triangle embodies the ideals of peace, unity, and equality. Centered within the white triangle is a red five-pointed star, representing one of the five regions inhabited by the Somali people. The red color also represents the sacrifices made by those who fought for the country's independence. Overall, the flag's design represents Djibouti's aspirations for peace, unity, and prosperity, as well as its significant geographical and cultural standing within the region.
