Army flag

A photograph of the Djibouti Army flag can be seen here where members of the Djibouti Army stand to attention at the closing ceremonies of the multi-national Eastern Africa Standby Force Field Training Exercise in Grand Bara, Djibouti on 04 December 2009. Djibouti was one of 10 nations participating in the exercise which tested the East African Standby Brigade's initial operating capabilities.

The Djibouti Army flag is based on the Djibouti national flag with the words RAPIDITÉ (quickness)  on the upper blue stripe and EFFICACITÉ (efficiency) on the lower green stripe, both in golden capital letters.  The Djibouti coat of arms is placed at each corner, above and below the lettering.

An interesting find.  However, without further evidence, I am a bit reluctant to call it the army flag.  As one of the units is the rapid reaction regiment (régiment d’action rapide), the inscription RAPIDITÉ on the flag could mean, that this is the flag (or  Colour) of this regiment only.
