Comoros ISD Calling code is +269
Comoros Islands are situated between Madagascar and Africa. Their current flag has been adopted in 2001 after series of changes. The flag had three variants from 1978 to 2001, though all of them consisted of green leaf, white crescent and four white five-pointed stars in different variations. Today’s version is enriched by four horizontal stripes in yellow, white, red and blue colors. Traditional symbols of Islam – a crescent and stars are now located in the green wedge on the left side of the flag. Each stripe as well as four stars represent four main islands of Comoros – Mohéli, Mayotte, Anjouan and Grande Comore. Mayotte has an official status of the French overseas territory, however, Comors Island do not recognize it.
Floating between Mozambique and Madagascar, the archipelago has long been a crossroads between civilisations and most Comorians are of mixed Afro-Arab descent. A blend of Swahili and traditional Islamic influences pervade the islands giving them a calm and phlegmatic atmosphere that guarantees a hospitable welcome.
The four main islands that comprise sleepy Comoros do not share the tourist infrastructure of the Seychelles or Mauritius (with the exception of Mayotte), but they do share the warm seas, deserted beaches and stunning hiking that these destinations are renowned for.
