The flag of the Republic of Kosovo was adopted by the Assembly of Kosovo immediately following the declaration of independence of Kosovo from Serbia on 17 February 2008. The now-used design is a variant of one proposal designed by Muhamer Ibrahimi. It shows six white stars in an arc above a golden map of Kosovo on a blue field.
The stars are officially meant to symbolise Kosovo's six major ethnic groups: Albanians, Serbs, Turks, Gorani, Romani and Bosniaks. Unofficially, the stars are sometimes said to represent the six regions, which according to Albanian ultra nationalist ideology, make up Greater Albania: Albania, Kosovo, western parts of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, parts of northern Greece, parts of Montenegro and Preševo Valley in southern Serbia.
