Flag of Eritrea

Flag of Eritrea

The flag of Eritrea, an African country situated on the Red Sea coast, has been adopted in 1995. It consists of three triangles of different colors, where the largest and red isosceles triangle forms a base for the pole side of the flag. The other two - a green on the top and blue at the bottom, are orthogonal and thus complete the rectangular shape of the flag. In the red field, an olive branch surrounded by a wreath of olive leaves is located. The color red symbolizes blood shed during the liberation struggles, blue represents the ocean and green is to remind agricultural tradition in the country. The olive branch has been inspired by the former flag that was designed as a honor to the United Nations.
