Flag of Somalia (GIF)



The flag of Somalia (Somali: Calanka Soomaaliyeed, Arabic: علم الصومال) consists of a single white five-pointed star centered on a light blue field. The five-pointed white star, known as the "Star of Unity," represents five areas where the Somali ethnic groups traditionally lived. The blue color represents the sky as well as the Guardafui Canal and the Indian Ocean. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on October 12, 1954.

The cheetahs and white star supporting the shield in its coat of arms are inherited from Italian Somaliland. The shield, the upper part of which is decorated like a crown, is placed on an intertwined white stripe, palm leaves, and spears.

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