The flag of the Central African Republic consists of four horizontal stripes of blue, white, green, and yellow, and a single vertical band of red, with a yellow five-pointed star in the upper left corner. The blue stripe represents the sky and hope, the white stripe represents peace and purity, the green stripe represents the country's natural resources and vegetation, and the yellow stripe represents prosperity.

The red vertical band represents the bloodshed in the country's struggle for independence, and the yellow star represents international solidarity and progress. The flag was officially adopted in 1958 and has remained unchanged since then.
