Flag of Burundi

Unusual flag of Burundi has been adopted on March 28, 1967. Its central theme is a white cross and a white circle in the middle of the flag. The cross divides the flag into four parts, where the upper and the lower fields are red and the left and the right field are green. In the white circle, there are three six-pointed stars, which allegedly represent national motto: "Unity, work, and progress." The stars may also symbolize the three main ethnical groups of Burundi, which are Hutus, Tutsis and Pygmies. Green color indicates hope for better future, while red traditionally recalls the blood shed during the struggle for freedom. The white color of the cross symbolizes peace.
