The flag of East Timor is one of the youngest flags since it has been adopted in May 2002. It is composed of a red leaf with two triangles on the left side – elongated yellow one and narrower black one. Moreover, a white five-pointed star is located in the black triangle. The flag dates back to 1975, when the island was liberated from the Portuguese domination. In the same year, however, the island was invaded by Indonesia and East Timor has not regained the independence until 2002. The flag has been inspired by a flag of revolutionary party Fretilin, where red indicates blood shed during the revolution. Black color reminds colonial past and the yellow triangle symbolizes hope for better tomorrows. Traditionally, the white color of the star symbolizes peace and freedom.

The Portuguese first arrived on the island in the early 16th century and by the 1550s had occupied the eastern part. The Dutch took control of the western part, which became part of the Dutch East Indies and, after independence, Indonesia. In 1975, the new left-wing Portuguese government relinquished all of its colonies. East Timor then enjoyed just a few days of independence, before the Indonesians annexed it as their 27th province. There was little local resistance and the international community largely acquiesced.
 
In the aftermath, the main independence movement faced a savage counter-insurgency, during which the Indonesian army killed over 100,000 East Timorese. Finally, a referendum was offered to East Timor in 1999, and 80% opted for independence. Violent reprisals by the military followed, but the country eventually became independent.
