Flag of Niger

Flag of Niger

The flag of African country Niger, which has been adopted a year before gaining its independence in 1959, consists of three horizontal stripes in orange, white and green colors. Moreover, in the middle of the white stripe, an orange circle is placed. The symbolism of colors used is as follows: red represents the Sahara Desert in the north, white stands for purity, green for hope or Nigerian vegetation in the southern parts of the country. Orange circle is to commemorate the bright sun illuminating the local rivers and landscape. The three stripes also represent three main regions of the country. The color variation may remind the flag of Ivory Coast, which was as well as Niger colonized by French.
