East Timor Flag Meaning:
According to the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of East Timor (Timor-Leste), the yellow triangle represents “the traces of colonialism in East Timor’s History”; the black triangle represents “the obscurantism that needs to be overcome”; the red base of the flag represents “the struggle for national liberation”; whilst the star, or “the light that guides”, is white to represent peace.
