Afar Revolutionary Democratic Unity Front


Much international attention has been focused in recent years on the political instability in the Horn of Africa. As Somalia descended into Civil War, Ethiopia staves off food shortages and bad governance, and Eritrea fends off hostilities from its neighbors, splinter groups have found a fertile atmosphere.

The Afar Revolutionary Democratic Unity Front’s goal is to untie the ethnic Afar regions of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djbouti and Somalia, apparently under the gun and torch – which doesn’t seem all that democratic to me. Other than the mixed messages, the flag is quite ingenious. It incorporates elements from the flags of Ethiopia (the star), Somalia (the light blue background), and Djbouti (the triangle.) The Afar Revolutionary Democratic Unity Front does not recognize Eritrea’s sovereignty.
