Flags of the World: Comoros Islands

The Comoros is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean with nearly 800,000 residents. The Comoros Islands flag is as colorful and lively as the people who live there. Unlike other flags that only feature a few colors, the flag of Comoros features five different colors.

The primary design of the flag of Comoros is comprised of four horizontal stripes of yellow, white, red, and blue from top to bottom. The colors do have a special meaning. Each of these four colors and stripes represents the four islands in the archipelago that make up the Comoros, Moheli, Mayotte, Anjouan, and Grand Comore.

On the left hand side of the Comoros Islands flag, the horizontal stripe pattern is interrupted by a green horizontal triangle that represents Islam, which also happens to be the dominant religion on the islands. The crescent and stars also represent this religion, but because there are four stars, they also represent the four islands listed above.

Designs of the Comoros Islands flag go back as far as 1975, but the current design was created in 2001 and officially adopted on January 7, 2002.
