Although no countries have a dark blue flag with eight yellow stars, the state flag of Alaska boasts these exact qualities; the flag of the European Union, which may be more recognizable, is also similar in design with 12 yellow stars atop a dark blue background. Additionally, other nations have flags with these design elements but may include other colors and vary in the number of stars portrayed.
The flag of the European Union, which was created in 1955 is well known and highly representative as it makes a statement for the 28 member countries that span across Europe. The yellow stars are arranged in a circle to symbolize the unity of the nations, as well as the harmony of the members, as stated by the European Union. The flag can be seen in participating EU countries across Europe.
