This naitional banner o Honduras wis adoptit on Januar 9, 1866, based on the banner o the Federal Republic o Central Americae. In 1823 Honduras joined the Unitit Provinces o Central America an adoptit their banner. In 1866 it wis amendit; five blue stars wur placed in the center tae represent the 5 oreeginal Central American provinces. The colors an pattern are the same as the banner o the Unitit Provinces o Central Americae.

The banner consists o three horizontal baunds o equal width wi an oweraw length:width ratio o 2:1. The twa ooter blue baunds represent the Pacific Ocean an the Caribbean Sea. The inner white baund represents the land atween the ocean an the sea an the peace an prosperity o its fowk. The five blue five-pointit starns arranged in an X pattern centered in the white baund represent the five naitions o the umwhile Federal Republic o Central Americae (El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, an Guatemala) an the hope that the naitions mey form a union again.

Ceevilian an government ships fly the naitional banner as an ensign. Ships o the Honduran Navy fly as a naval ensign a version o the naitional banner in which the five star emblem is replaced bi the coat o airms o Honduras abuin an invertit airch o five sma blue stars.
