Flag of Seychelles (GIF)


The Seychelles flag consists of five blue, yellow, red, white, and green rays that extend from the lower-left corner of the flag to the top and right sides. Bands resembling light beams represent a dynamic new country moving towards the future. The blue color represents the sky and sea surrounding the Seychelles. Yellow symbolizes the sun that gives life. The red color symbolizes their determination to work in unity and love for the people and the future. While the white band represents social justice and harmony, the green band expresses the soil and its natural environment. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on January 8, 1996.

Its coat of arms depicts life on the island. The shield shows a landscape with a giant tortoise and a coconut tree on a grassy field in the front, an island and a sailing ship in the sea in the back, and clouds in the sky. At the top is a flying white-tailed tropical bird, and the shield is supported by two sailfish.

The Seychelles flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
The Seychelles, officially known as the Republic of Seychelles, is an island country in the Indian Ocean. Its capital is Victoria, and its population is about 97,000.
