Brief History

The National flag of Djibouti was adopted at the time of independence in 1977 but it is uncertain as to what the colours and the star represent.

One train of thought is that as it was the Ligue populaire africaine pour l’indépendance (LPAI) that led the country to independence the red star was in inverse of the white star on the red background of the LPAI flag. In addition the white, green and light blue were all colours used in the original LPAI flag.

The Green represents the Afar people with their land and links to Islam, the light blue represents the Issa people and the star represents the unity of the state being made up of many different factions.

On the other hand another view is that the white is for peace, blue for the sky and the sea and green for the earth.

Djibouti history has meant that a number of different flags were used over the years which are shown below.

Emblem of Djibouti

The national emblem of Djibouti was introduced after attaining independence from France on 27 June 1977.

It is bordered on the sides with laurel branches and within this there is a vertical spear with a shield in front. Underneath the shield two hands come from the spear both of which hold a large machete.

These two hands symbolize the main two ethnic groups of the nation: the Afar and the Somali. The spear is topped by a red star which symbolizes the unity between the Somali and the Afar peoples.
