Backpackflag/Flag Patch Curaçao
Size: 6.5 x 4 cm (2.56 x 1.57 inch)
The flag of Curaçao is a blue field with a horizontal yellow stripe slightly below the midline and two white, five-pointed stars in the canton. The blue symbolises the sea and sky (the bottom and top blue sections, respectively) divided by a yellow stroke representing the bright sun which bathes the island. The two stars represent Curaçao and Klein Curaçao, but also 'Love & Happiness'. The five points on each star symbolise the five continents from which Curaçao's people come.
According to Flags of the World, the horizontal stripe have ratio 5:1:2. The stars have diameters 1/6 and 2/9 of the flag height. The centre of the smaller one is 1/6 the flag height from the left and top edges, and the centre of the larger is 1/3 from the left and top edges. The blue is Pantone 280, and the yellow, Pantone 102.
After the adoption of the flag by Aruba, Curaçao received approval for a flag in 1979. 2,000 thousand designs were submitted to a special council. 10 were shortlisted and the council decided on 29 November 1982. With some modifications, the flag was adopted on 2 July 1984 (source: Wikipedia).
