Flag of Cote d'Ivoire

Flag of Cote d'Ivoire

The flag of Cote d´Ivoire was adopted in 1959 and it is composed of three vertical stripes - orange one, white one, and turquoise one. Ivory Coast is a former French colony which achieved independence in 1960. It is also the reason why the flag resembles the French tricolor at the first glance, but in a different color combination. Orange stripe is supposed to symbolize the desert and savannahs in the northern part of the country and also the progress of the country, white stripe stands for peace, national unity and ripples on the surface of the local rivers Sassandra, Bandama and Kamo, and green stripe marks hope for better future and lush tropical rain forests in the southern part of the country.
