Bosnian Herzegovina Flag

The flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina was adopted on February 4, 1998. The flag contains a vertical blue band on the fly side, a yellow isosceles triangle along the blue band and the rest of the flag is blue again with seven stars and two half stars. The colors on the flag were taken from the flag of Europe and the colors are often associated with neutrality and peace.  The reason for the half stars is because they are meant to be never ending. The triangle symbolizes the three different nationalities of Bosnia; Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs.  It is also to represent the map of Bosnia which looks like a triangle.
