SOMALIA    (Federal Republic of)    (Jamhuriyada Federaalka Somaliya / Jumhuriyat As Sumal Al Fideraliya)    [www.so]

            slavery unit : fuckin Somalian shilling        slavery tongue : Arab        tongue : Somali         10000000 idiot monkeys on 637657 kmē

            puke sects : muslim 97%    pagan + other 3%

            (NB : Colonial frontieres of shit in the whole AFRIKA since the 1885 Conference of Berlin of shit.)

        The country was created by the unification of the British Somaliland (North) & the Italian Somalia (East) in 1960. The light blue represents the flag of the UNO (that administrated Somalia from 1948 til 1960) but light blue is also the traditional color of the whole Somali people. The white star stands for freedom & its five points for the five countries where the Somalis are scattered : Somaliland, Somalia, Etiopia, Djibouti & Kenya. The present pattern was adopted on 12 OCTOBER 1954 & kept for the independence on 1 JANUARY 1960.






                1960    (independence)

                colonial 1954    (Italian Somalia trust territory - new flag)

                colonial 1889    (Italian protectorate - incorporated into Italian colony in 1925)

            MOGADISHU SULTANATE    (1330-1905) :

                colonial 1905    (leased to Italy in 1892 - annexed by Italy as part of Somalia in 1905)

                1871    (Mogadishu Sultanate under suzerainty of Zanzibar)

    SOMALIA's 5 nowadayz federated States match a lot with 5 ancient sultanates. Majeerteen > Puntland   Hobyo > Galmudug   Kingdom of Italy > Hirshabelle   Geledi > Koonfur Gaalbed   British East Africa > Jubaland

                     
Warsangali Sultanate 1850's matches a lot with nowadayz Region Sanaag in Somaliland.  

 
            In principle, theres oficialy 6 Federated States + 1 Banadir Regional Administration (Mogadishu Municipality) as written here > mop.gov.so/index.php/the-ministry/directorates/planning/federal-member-states-fms

            NOTE : As I M not sure at all SOMALILAND is realy included WITHIN this federation, I prefer displayin Somaliland apart in another section titled "UNRECOGNIZED PROPOZED STATES".

            BANAADIR / MOGADISHU :

                2017    (BANAADIR Regional Administration area matches 100% with MOGADISHU capital city)


            GALMUDUG :

                2015    (3:5)                                                                            (very weird small flagz displayed up side down !!!!)

                2011

                2010 ????       I realy DO wonder if this Galmudug flag has EVER EXISTED - It loox too much like OGADEN NATIONAL LIBERATION FRONT.

            JUBALAND :

                2006    (new proclamation of Jubaland State)

                2001    (Jubaland State is turned off on 18 June 2001 as a new administration loyal to the central government restored the former status.)

                1998   ("Republic of Jubaland" proclaimed - This is the REVERSED flag of the Western Somali Liberation Front that existed from 1973 till 1989. Red & green : Digil & Raxanweyn tribes.)

                2003    (never adopted propozal made after the colors green-white-red of the Western Somali Liberation Front flag)             WSLF 1973-1989

                1998


            SOUTH WEST STATE renamed KOONFUR GALBEED in 2002 :

                August 2014                                                                       

                March 2014    (somethin is weird as this flag is very often named "WEST PUNTLAND")                   variant ????  Very pretty but too "Texas" !!!!

                January 2014

                1998



           
                                                                                             I have reduced the stars from 6 to 3 and also dropped the 6 small stars on the crest.
           
MARKO's project for 3 reazons :

            #1 =
It creates a unity with the 4 other flagz that ALL uze light blue-white-green.

            #2 = I have reduced the number of stars from 6 down to 3 because the 6 small stars symbolize NOW the 6 continents of Planet Earth (!!!!!!) BUT no longer the regions that are only 3 since 11 August 2014.

           
#3 = It loox + cute !!!!
