The flag of the Comoros consists of a four-pointed white star within a green crescent, set against a blue background. The four points of the star represent the four main islands of the Union of the Comoros: Grande Comore, Anjouan, Mohéli, and Mayotte.

The green crescent represents Islam, which is the dominant religion in the country, and the blue background represents the sea that surrounds the Comoros. The flag is also intended to symbolize the country's unity and progress, as well as its cultural and historical ties to the Arab world.
