More about Somalia
Somalia, a state in East Africa that includes the Somali Peninsula and the coastal plain to the south. Large parts of the country consist of bush and dry savannah. Around 90% of the population is Somal, the majority of whom live as nomads or semi-nomads. Their livestock husbandry (goats, sheep, camels, cattle) is the most important branch of agriculture. The industry is hardly developed.
History: The country has been under Islamic-Arab influence since the 9th century. At the end of the 19th century the northern part became British and the southern part Italian. In 1960 both parts received independence and merged to form the Republic of Somalia. Since the late 1980s, the country has been shaken by a civil war between rival tribal groups, which could not be ended even by the presence of UN reaction forces (1992–94 / 95). The situation is exacerbated by drought, floods (especially in 1997), hunger, epidemics and refugee flows.

The biggest cities in Somalia

Civil war, human rights violations and famine have dramatically worsened people’s situation since the 1980s. During the famine from October 2010 to April 2012 alone, around 260,000 people died. Hundreds of thousands became refugees in their own country, over 1 million fled to neighboring countries, mainly to Kenya, Ethiopia and Yemen. Around 1.5 million Somalis live permanently abroad.
Social: The majority of the population lives below the poverty line without adequate access to food, drinking water and medical care.
With a few exceptions, the entire local population is committed to Sunni Islam (especially the Shafiite school of law ), which currently forms the main (only) pillar of the legal system in the form of Sharia courts. Islam is regarded as the official religion in the “Republic of Somaliland”, which was proclaimed in the northern part of the country in 1991 and whose government includes a minister for religious affairs.
The vanishing minority of Christians still living in Somalia are almost exclusively made up of foreigners; almost all Somali Christians (mostly of the Ethiopian Orthodox denomination) left the country after 1991. The exemte Catholic diocese of Mogadishu (established in 1975, currently vacant) is identical to the only existing parish in it.
The national flag was introduced on October 12, 1954, before independence was achieved. The blue color of the flag refers to the flag of the UNO, in the middle is a white five-pointed star as a symbol for African freedom.
The coat of arms was introduced on October 10, 1956. It shows a white, five-pointed star in the gold-rimmed, light blue shield. An Arabic wall crown rests on the shield as a sign of sovereignty. Under the shield lie two flat crossed spears and palm branches, draped with a ribbon. Two leopards serve as shield holders.
National holiday: July 1st commemorates the founding of the state in 1960.
