East Timor Flag Meaning & History

The flag of East Timor was first designed on November 28, 1975, the day before the country declared independence. The country would soon be invaded by Indonesia a few days later, and the flag became a symbol of resistance. East Timor gained independence in 2002 and officially adopted the flag as its national symbol.

The red background represents the struggle for liberation and the bloodshed in the fight for independence. The black triangle symbolizes the nation’s history as a colony, while the surrounding yellow stands for the wealth of the country. The white star is for peace and hope.
