Flag of Comoros
Four equal horizontal bands of yellow (top), white, red, and blue
with a green isosceles triangle based on the hoist;
centered within the triangle is a white crescent
with the convex side facing the hoist and four white, five-pointed stars
placed vertically in a line between the points of the crescent;
the horizontal bands and the four stars represent the four main islands of the archipelago
- Mwali, Njazidja, Nzwani, and Mayotte (a territorial collectivity of France, but claimed by Comoros);
the crescent, stars, and color green are traditional symbols of Islam
