Flag of Chad

Flag of Chad

The flag of Chad consists of a vertical tricolor of blue, yellow and red stripes. The flag is almost identical to the flag of Romania, but its blue stripe has a darker shade. The flag has been inspired by the French tricolor as Chad was for many years a French colony. At the same time, it carries two Pan-African colors and therefore refers to ties both to France and the other African countries. The blue stripe on the left side of the flag represents the African sky and waterways, yellow stripe symbolizes the sun and dry desert in northern part of Chad and red traditionally stands for courage and the bloodshed during the struggles for independence. The flag has been adopted in 1959, when Chad was freed from the French rule.
