History of the Somali flag
In 1949, the assembly of the United Nations decided that Somalia would be
under the former Italian colonial power as a trusteeship territory for ten
years. There were three other governments who were member of united nations
commission that was sent to Somalia and were sent as advisory council of the
trusteeship administration of Somalia. They were Egypt, the Philippines and
Columbia. In April, 1950 the Italian trusteeship administration took over
power of Somalia,and the British military administration left Somali During
the early months of 1954, the legislative council had been formed by the
Italian trusteeship administration and advisory council of the United
Mations. The members of the legislative council were composed Somalis,
Italians. Arabs and Indians. They had to prepare all laws and legislation
concerning the country the ten years of trusteeship territory of the United
Nations. The members were not elected,but each political party, foreign
community or any other recognized organizations had to select members who
were representative the above mentioned organizations.
Mr. Mohammed Awale Liban had been selected by the Somali labor trade
union. Then members suggested the the Somalia national flag must be adapted
by the legislative council in order that the somalia people get to know
their National Flag before independence. So the program of the legislative
council agenda reached to be discussed the Somali National Flag. Mr. Liban
had proposed that only the somali members should discuss the issue of their
own Flag. According to the legislative councils constitution each new
proposal had to be voted on by the Legislative council members. Mr liban
succeeded his suggestion.while members of legislative councils which now
only Somalis. They choose the chairman for Mr. Sheik Omar. Then the
temporary new chairman said that the agenda will debate the next day.
Therefore Mr. liban went home and started to design the Flag. Of course he
had chosen a blue color and the middle was a white star.however, each point
of the white star would represent the five Somalia regions, which were
divided by the colonial powers.
The next morning the session started around 10:30. However, when the
chairman had opened the session Mr. Liban had requested to the chairman to
give him a chance to speak, the chairman allowed him. He stood up in front
of legislative council members and stretched out on his chest the blue Flag
with a white star in the middle. therefore as he kept on stretching on his
chest, then one of the Somali members applauded and cheered while clapping
for five minutes. The Somalia temporary chairman had made short speech in
which he mentioned the greatness and ability of Mr. Liban whose talent had
produced such a beautiful Flag less then 24 hours.
Mr. Mohammed Awale Liban said the blue color stands the United Nations
who help us to reach our dream of independence; white means peace and
prosperity; the star is the five regions of Somali.
