Timor-Leste flag

East Timor's national flag, usually known as Timor-Leste, is red with a black isosceles triangle on the hoist side and a bigger yellow triangle extending from the hoist side to the center of the flag. In the center of the black triangle is a white five-pointed star. When East Timor declared independence from Indonesia on May 20, 2002, this flag was officially adopted.

The flag's meaning is steeped in the country's history and culture. The crimson color is thought to signify the blood poured by East Timorese during their independence struggle. The indigenous people are represented by the black triangle, while the larger community is represented by the yellow triangle. The white star is a symbol of peace and the nation's guiding light. The black and yellow triangles are grouped in the shape of an arrow pointing upward, representing the country's progress.
