Flag of Tanzania

Flag of Tanzania

The flag of Tanzania has been adopted in 1964 and it is composed of blue and green orthogonal triangles in the upper left and lower right corners. The triangles are separated by a black stripe, which is bordered by a narrower yellow stripe. The flag has been inspired by the flags of Tanganyika and Zanzibar - two states, which merged in order and created Tanzania. The green field is borrowed from the flag of Tanganyika and it refers to the agricultural tradition in this area and its lush vegetation. Blue reminds the Indian Ocean surrounding Zanzibar. Black color represents the original inhabitants of Tanzania and yellow symbolizes the country's mineral wealth.
