With a solid blue field and a gold silhouette of the nation's borders in the center below an arc of six white stars. Each of the six stars on the Kosovo flag represents one of the six largest ethnic groups in the nation. The country's silhouette represents the country itself and its national unity. The blue field resembles that of the United Nations flag, which flew over the country before it gained its full independence from Serbia. The flag of Kosovo is as young as the modern nation. The current Kosovo flag has been in use for less than a decade, and it is the only national flag that Kosovo has ever had.
