Aruba’s national flag was officially adopted on March 18, 1976, along with the official anthem "Aruba Dushi Tera". The authors of the anthem are Juan Chabaya Lampe (lyrics) and Rufo Weffer (music).
The symbols on the flag of Aruba consist of a red star and two yellow stripes. The red star represents the four points of the compass, with the island having drawn people from around the world. The star also represents the island itself, surrounded by the beautiful blue sea.
Each of the four colours of the flag of Aruba has significance. The Blue represents the sea that surrounds Aruba. Yellow is the colour of abundance, representing the island's past and its industries of gold, aloe and oil. Red is for the love each Aruban has for the country and the ancient Brazilwood industry and White symbolises the snow-white beaches as well as the purity of the hearts of Aruba's people, who strive for justice, order and liberty.
