Background knowledge

The flag of Djibouti was introduced on 27.06.1977. It shows two horizontal bands in light blue and green with an isosceles white triangle on the pole. In the center of the triangle is a five-pointed red star. Blue is the color of the lssa ethnic group and also represents the sky and the sea. Green symbolizes the Afar ethnic group and Islam. White represents peace. The red star embodies the struggle to achieve independence. The white triangle with sides of equal length represents the country's motto "Unity, Equality, Peace". According to its origin, the flag is the flag of a political party, first the FLCdS, later the LPAI.
The coat of arms of Djibouti was introduced at the same time as the flag. It shows two arms (Afar and Issa) each with a shark knife, between them a lance and a round shield (defensive readiness). Above them the red star. The whole is surrounded by a wreath of laurel leaves. This stands for unity and victory.

Hymn

Composer: Abdi Robleh Songwriter: Aden Elmi
Songtext:

Hinjinne u sara kaca
Calankaan harraad iyo
Haydaar u mudateen.

Hir cagaarku qariyayiyo
Habkay samadu tahayoo
Xiddig dhi igleh hoorshoo
Caddaan lagu hadheeyaay.

Maxaa haybad kugu yaal.
