Kosovo ISD Calling code is +381
The flag of Kosovo consists of a blue leaf and a yellow map of the country in the middle of the flag. The use of a map as a central motif is truly unique, only Cyprus had a similar. Above the map, six white stars are placed where each represents one of the ethnic groups living in the territory of Kosovo – Albanians, Serbs, Turks, Gorani, Roma, and Bosnians. The flag has been officially adopted on 17 February 2008 – the day of declaration of independence. The flag was chosen in a public competition organized by the United Nations in cooperation with the transitional federal government and its author is Muhamer Ibrahimi. Prior to the declaration of independence, the UN flag was temporarily used.
Depending on your global perspective, Kosovo is either Europe’s youngest nation or not a nation at all. Since declaring independence from Serbia in 2008 it has received only partial recognition as a sovereign state by members of the United Nations. Its fragile footing and wretched modern history might make Kosovo an unlikely travel destination, but the country can be extremely rewarding for those keen to find out what lies beyond the headlines.
Cultures and religions have been clashing in modern day Kosovo for centuries, but between the periods of unrest, this small, landlocked country has pioneered peaceful coexistence and mutual enrichment of cultures. While Muslim Albanians dominate the population today, followed by Orthodox Christian Serbs, there are many other groups with their own unique cultures and ways of life.
