The white and red bands symbolize the way toward the development of the country, and the colors like white represents peace and red color for the symbol of efforts. The yellow color, round development of the stars, and black blue area show likeness to the flag of Europe with 12 stars in place of 10, initially developed for the Authorities of Europe, but European Union also used this. The bands are in the ratio of 6:1:1:1:3 and the group of stars is centered 3/8 beside the fly side of the flag.
The Republic Constitution does not specify what the formal ratios for the size and the size of the flag are. The sizes of the areas that make up the flag are given proportionally to the size of the edges, without specifying those measurements. However, the percentage most commonly used is 2:3, which is the same percentage that was used in the flag prior to 1992. Consequently, the percentage of 2:3 is the de facto percentage.

In the late Sixties, a flag for the Colonial international region of Cape Verde was suggested, made up of the flag of People from Portugal defaced with the protect from the provincial hands in the lower fly. However, this flag was never applied.
