[Central African Empire: Bokassa's flag] by Ivan Sarajcic

During the rule of Bokassa the national flag was unaltered. There was, however, an Imperial Flag. This was green, with a 20-pointed gold star in the middle upon which was an eagle with spread wings (also gold).
Stuart Notholt 8 December 1995

As it is hinted by Smith 1982, it seems that Bokassa took his emblem referring to the eagle of Napoleon Bonaparte, who seems have been his "idol".
