Flag of Curaçao

Ratio: 2:3. Adopted: 2 july 1984
Mark Sensen

A blue flag with a yellow stripe (about the width of the white stripe in the Danish flag), located below the center line, and containing two 5 pointed white stars in upper hoist, the upper one smaller and to the left of the lower one.
William M. Grimes-Wyatt, 8 April 1996

From <>:
Curaçao’s flag portrays the blue sea and sky, bisected by the yellow sun. The two stars represent Curaçao and its uninhabited sister island Klein Curaçao; their five points symbolize the five continents from which the varied local population originates.

Historical Doubtful Flag

by Jarig Bakker, 31 January 2003

From "Vlaggenalbum" of Gouda's Roen (c. 1950) - The flag for Curaçao is the Dutch RWB with a CoA in the center (apparently not the CoA of that island); I haven't seen it in any flagbook, so this seems to be highly doubtful. The ship is of the West Indische Compagnie, see <>.
Jarig Bakker, 31 January 2003

Both Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles used the CoA of the "Geoctrooiëerde Westindische Compagnie" (Dutch West India Company), that is a three-master on a way sea. So this CoA may have been used on flags. Note that the old CoA at <> has a white scroll with black lettering, and not a red scroll.
