Kosovo Flag Pitch Flag of a New Country

Teaming up with Labinot Hoxha, First Secretary of European Relations at the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo in Brussels (and generally a cool dude), the Foreign Office team was massively excited to enter the competition for Kosovo’s new flag in 2007. We looked far back in the area’s history, way before the recent troubles, and found seven stars and the sun as archetypal symbols which became our starting point. Sadly we didn’t win but we fought well!
