Honduras flag

Honduras' flag has three horizontal stripes of equal width, with the centre stripe white and the outer stripes turquoise. The center of the main stripe is decorated with a quincuncial pattern of five turquoise stars. The turquoise stripes represent the Pacific and Caribbean oceans, as well as the blue sky and brotherhood.

The white stripe symbolizes the land between the ocean and the sea, the people's serenity and prosperity, and the purity of their ideas. The five stars represent the five former Central American Federal Republics: El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala.

The flag has been in use since Honduras joined the United Provinces of Central America in 1823, and it was standardized in 1949. The Honduran government and navy both fly the flag, with the navy also flying a naval ensign bearing Honduras' coat of arms.
