Events of 1977

January 21: Spain slightly modified its coat of arms.
January 23: The Eritrean People's Liberation Front adopted a flag. It would eventually become the model for Eritrea's independence flag two decades later.
June 27: The French Territory of the Afars and Issas became independent as Djibouti. It adopted the same flag used by the Somali Coast Liberation Front during the independence struggle.
June 29: Less than a month after the coup which brough the Seychelles Peoples United Party to power, the Seychelles adopted a new flag modelled on the SPUP party flag.
November 11: Outraged over Anwar Sadat's visit to Israel, Muammar Gaddafi had the flag of the Federation of Arab Republics ceremonially burned and adopted a plain green flag as a "provisional" measure. It would remain flying until he was deposed over 30 years later.
November 18: The Solomon Islands adopted a flag.
November 29: The Vanua'aku Party in the New Hebrides adopted a flag for its "People's Provisional Government". Three years later, when the country achieved independence as Vanuatu, it adopted a flag with many of the same basic elements.
Sometime in December: The Sámi poet Synnøve Persen designed a flag for Sápmi. The colour scheme had been used by activists in Norway since the 1960s.
