Flag of Angola 🇦🇴

Flag of Angola

The background of Angolan flag 🇦🇴, which was adopted in 1975, consists of two horizontal stripes of red and black color of the same width. Red should symbolize the blood shed during the struggle for freedom and black stands for African continent and the black population. The central motif is located at the borderline of these stripes and consists of a yellow five-pointed star surrounded by half of toothed wheel which is cut by machete. At first glance, these symbols evoke the traditional symbols of communism - the star represents socialism, the wheel industry, and the machete stands for the rural population and agriculture. The yellow color of this theme should point to the vast mineral wealth of the country. In 2003, a new flag was designed, but it has not found support among Angolans yet.
