The LPAI banner haed a reid triangle wi a white starn. For the naitional banner, the star wis placed in an upright rather than a slantit poseetion, an the proportions o the banner wur lengthened. The licht blue represents the Issa Somalis, an the green represents the Afar. White, green, an licht blue are the colors o the LPAI. The reid starn signifies the unity o the diverse state.
