Description and Brief History

The national flag of Djibouti is a horizontal flag bicolor with equal bands of light blue and light green, with a white, equilateral triangle at the hoist. In the center of the triangle is a red star. The flag combines the basic layout and colors from the flag of the nationalist organization "Front de Libération de la Côte des Somalis".

Before the establishment of the French territory in Somalia, the flag of the Sultanate of Tajoura was the only ensign used in the territory. The flag of Djibouti was later created in 1970. Adopted in 1977, the national flag was an adaptation of the flag of the Front for the Liberation of the Somali Coast (FLCS), a guerrilla group that led Djibouti with the Ligue Populaire Africaine pour l'Indépendance (LPAI) to independence. The flag of Djibouti was raised for the first time upon independence on 27 June 1977,[2] by the head of police Yacine Yabeh Galab. It is today flown on many governmental buildings.
