Flag of Honduras (GIF)



The national flag of Honduras (Spanish: Bandera de Honduras) consists of three horizontal bands of blue (turquoise from 2022) and white, with five blue stars centered on the white band. Blue (turquoise) represents the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, as well as the sky and brotherhood. The color white symbolizes the land between the ocean and the sea, the peace and prosperity of its people, and the purity of thoughts. The stars represent the five nations of the former Federal Republic of Central America and the hopes of the nations to reunite. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the current version of the flag was adopted in 1898.

Its coat of arms contains many symbols that refer to the country's history, lands, and the diversity of its natural resources, as well as symbolizing peace, equality, freedom, and hope.

The Honduras flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
