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".

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.
