DESCRIPTION

The Kosovo flag was adopted on February 17, 2008.

The flag is partly the result of an international design competition, organized by the United Nations-backed provisional government, which attracted almost a thousand entries. The competition rules insisted that the final design must not use ethnic or national symbols or color schemes in order to ensure that it represented all citizens of Kosovo.

The flag displays six white stars in an arc above a golden map of Kosovo on a blue field. They are officially meant to symbolize Kosovo's six major ethnic groups: Albanians, Serbs, Turks, Gorani, Roma and Bosniaks.
