Bosnia and Herzegovina flag

The flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina is a distinctive flag that consists of a medium blue field with a yellow right triangle separating it, and seven full five-pointed white stars and two half stars along the hypotenuse of the triangle.

The three points of the triangle represent the three main ethnic groups of Bosnia and Herzegovina: Bosniaks, Croats, and Serbs. The triangle also represents the approximate shape of the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The stars, which represent Europe, are meant to be infinite in number and thus they continue from top to bottom.

The colors of the flag, white, blue, and yellow, are often associated with neutrality and peace, and they are also colors traditionally associated with Bosnian culture and history. The blue background is evocative of the flag of the European Union.
