Somaliland

My knowledge of the current situation of the two countries Somalia and Somaliland is limited. As you can see, I've put a little Somaliland flag into the Somalia flag at the top.

Is this good? I hope it doesn't offend too many people, but how could I choose just one?

Jeez, you're right, they both have stars! The writing's Arabic. I must say I don't much like the Somaliland flag -it looks like an Arab flag, and not just cos of the writing. The Somalia flag is prettier -just plain blue with a lone white star.

The Arabic writing is the shahada, the Islamic creed. Not that I could read it but you just have to compare it to the Saudi flag and find that it is the same. Also, that is it is in the green stripe is a clear hint that it is an Islamic writing. Just my 2 cents worth... :)

Hey Hans,

Of course you're right to put both flags up, although, isn't the star on the Somalia rather than Somaliland flag? Not sure.

Nice to see you here!

I took the Somaliland flag from a good list somewhere, probably Wikipedia. It seems to have a little black star also.

I guess, whoever invented that flag in the first place, must have thought that at least one element should be similar in the two flags. (:-)

Do you know if the writing on the Somaliland flag is Arabic? Or is it some other language and alphabet?
