Timor Leste (East Timor) Flag
The Timor Leste or East Timor flag design dates back to 1975 when East Timor declared independence from Portugal, which was 9 days prior to being invaded by Indonesia. During that time there was a different flag used to represent the Indonesian occupation and then the flag of the UN was used from 1999 - 2002 while under UN administration. In 2002 the country became independent again and the same flag from 1975 was raised.
The East Timor flag design consists of a red field with two isosceles triangles based on the hoist side of the flag. The larger triangle is yellow, with a smaller black triangle superimposed on top of it. In the centre of the black triangle there is a white, 5 pointed star. The yellow represents the colonialism of East Timors history, the black for 'the obscurantism that needs to be overcome', the star is the light that guides, white for peace and red for the struggles to become independent.
Our World flags are finished with a loop at the top and bottom of the flag to be used with clips to attach to the rope and run up a flag pole. Clips are included with the flag for your convenience.
