Seychelles flag

The Seychelles flag represents the country's identity and history. It has a blue background with yellow horizontal bands across the top and bottom. The flag has a green disk in the middle with a white coco de mer nut wrapped by a brown ribbon with the word ‘Seychelles' and 15 five-pointed white stars.

The flag's blue and yellow colors reflect the sky and sea, while the green tint depicts the natural vegetation of the islands. The white stars represent the country's various islands, while the coco de mer nut is its national symbol. The flag was adopted on January 8, 1996, and it is the country's third flag since its independence from Britain on June 29, 1976. The current flag's colors reflect those of two of the country's major political parties: the Seychelles People's United Party and the Seychelles Democratic Party.
