The Aruban flag has a rich symbolism in the use of the images and the colors in it.
The red star on the Aruba Flag represents the four points of the compass that in turn is symbolic of the people of various nationalities who have come and settled in Aruba.
The white border around the star represents the sandy stretches that surround Aruba on all sides.
The blue color of the background of the Aruba Flag is emblematic of the color of the sea.
The yellow stripes are a representation of the island’s movement towards being a separate self-governing member of the Kingdom of Netherlands. They also stand for the mineral wealth of the land that brought in prosperity to the islanders in the 19th century. The flag of Aruba represents the ties, hopes and desires of the Aruban people. The ratio of the flag is 2:3.
