This flag consists of three horizontal stripes—blue, white, and blue respectively. And five azure stars in the form of an X.
Though it is based on the federation flag of the United Provinces of Central America. But later others changed in terms of elements.
The present-day Honduras flag was in 1866 when Honduran people focused on a proper national symbol.
They decided that the flag of the United Provinces of Central America should keep but with distinctive symbols on it.
Symbols in Honduras Flag
Less than a year after the United State of America preserved its national union in a civil war, the Honduras flag was adopted.
The stars on the Honduras flag-inspired from American flag stars, which are symbols of different states united.
The five stars in this flag represent the five provinces of the United Provinces of Central America.
The two blue outer stripes represent the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the blue sky, and brotherhood.
The inner white band is a symbol of peace and prosperity of its people, purity of thoughts, and also the land between the ocean and the see.
One of the variations in the flag that distinguishes it from the old version is the coat of the arms of Honduras. And they added coats of the arm to the flag, the military used it only for military purposes.
The civilian and government Honduran flag does not have the coat of the arm. Civilians and government ships fly the Honduran flags as an ensign. On the see, only Honduran Navy uses the flag with the coat of arms of it above a semicircle turquoise stars as the naval ensign.

Honduras is a country located in Central America with a population of over nine million. This country has been a colonized country under the rule of Spain until 1821.
Briefly, after Honduras gained independence from Spain, it became part of the first Mexican Empire. It remained under the rule of Spain for two years—1821-1823.
In 1823 along some other Central American countries including El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Guatemala formed The Central United Provinces of Central America.
In 1838, Honduras separated itself from the united provinces. But still, it was using the federation flag of 1823 as Honduras flag.
Although the federation separated from Honduras. In the 19th and 20th centuries, it did several abortive attempts for reunifying back to the federation.
