East Timor's flag was adopted on May 19, 2002, when East Timor became independent from Indonesia. East Timor's flag is red with a black isosceles (with two equal angles) triangle based along the flagpole side of the flag; the black triangle has a large white star centered in it. Between the red and the black is a thin wedge of yellow. The proportions of the East Timor's flag are 1:2 (height to width).

As the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste states, the yellow triangle symbolizes "the traces of colonialism in East Timor's History,". the black triangle represents "the obscurantism that needs to be overcome," the red background stands for "the struggle for national liberation," and the white star signifies peace.
