Product Description

?ÿ A light blue shield, gold bordered and capped with a crown-like device to indicate sovereignty, displays a large white five-pointed star in its center. The colors are those of the United Nations (under whose sponsorship territory of the former Italian Protectorate of Somalia and the British Protectorate of Somaliland were merged in the new republic in 1960). The five points of the star represent regions in which the largely Moslem Somalis live, the two which form the new state plus the Afar and Issa territory (formerly French-controlled) and portions of Ethiopia and Kenya. The star proclaims independence; its five points symbolize Somalis in five areas of East Africa, three of them outside the borders of the official state. ?ÿ Symbols of the Nations, 244 ?ÿ
