Flag of Swaziland

The background of the flag of Swaziland, which has been adopted in 1968, consists of five horizontal stripes. The very top and the bottom one are blue, followed by two narrower yellow stripes and wider red stripe in the middle. In the center of the red stripe, a white-black Masai shield with two spears and a stick behind is placed. Both ends of the stick as well as the shield itself are decorated with purple-blue feathers from modes cock and Turacos. The shield and arms meant to symbolize readiness of Swaziland people to fight for their territory. Tufts of feathers represent Swaziland royal dynasty. Dark red stripe represents past bloodsheds and black and white on the shield reminds racial tolerance in the country.
