Curaçao flag

The national flag of Curaçao represents the island nation and its history as a part of the Netherlands Antilles from 1984 until its dissolution in 2010. The flag consists of a blue field with a horizontal yellow stripe slightly below the midline and two white, five-pointed stars in the canton.

The blue symbolizes the sea and sky, divided by a yellow stroke representing the sun that bathes the island. The two stars represent Curaçao and Klein Curaçao, with the five points on each star symbolizing the five continents from which Curaçao's people descend.

The horizontal stripes have a ratio of 5:1:2 (blue:yellow:blue), and the stars have diameters 1/6 and 2/9 of the flag height. The blue is Pantone 280, and the yellow, Pantone 102. The flag was officially adopted in 1984 after a design competition and has remained unchanged since.
