The Somali flag, commonly known as the Somali national flag, was adopted on October 12, 1954, and was created by Mohammed Awale Liban. It has a light blue background with a white star in the center and a white five-pointed star in the center.
The light blue color is considered to represent the United Nations and the hope for peace, while the Somali flag represents the Somali people's unity and aspirations. The five points on the star reflect the five regions in which Somalis live. The design was first used within Somaliland's Trust Territory before being adopted by the short-lived State of Somaliland and, later, the Somali Republic.
