Djibouti obtained independence from France on as the Republic of Djibouti on 27 June 1977 and the first stamps of the new republic were issued on that date.
The Republic of Djibouti is a country located in the Horn of Africa. The state of Djibouti is predominantly inhabited by two ethnic groups, the Somali and the Afar people, the Somalis being the major ethnic group of the country. In the late 19th century, the colony of French Somaliland was established following treaties signed by the ruling Somali and Afar sultans with the French.
It was subsequently renamed to the French Territory of the Afars and the Issas in 1967. A decade later, the Djiboutian people voted for independence. This officially marked the establishment of the Republic of Djibouti, named after its capital city. Djibouti joined the United Nations the same year, on 20 September 1977.
1977 Stamps of Djibouti were issued with the denominations of 45 francs, 65 francs and 70 francs featuring Map and Flag of Djibouti - President Hassan Gouled Aptidon - Traditional Jewelry respectively.
