Somalia’s flag was adopted in 1954 and designed by Somali scholar Mohammad Awale Liban. The 5-pointed Star of Unity
represent the Somali ethnic group. The blue background was originally inspired by the UN flag, in recognition of the UN’s help during Somalia’s transition to independence. Blue also represents the sky and the Indian Ocean.
This outdoor flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a sturdy white canvas heading and grommets. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back.
