Flag of Ethiopia 🇪🇹

Flag of Ethiopia

The origin of the color base of the flag of Ethiopia 🇪🇹 is shrouded in mystery. One possible interpretation says that the colors green, yellow and red are referring to the colors of the rainbow, which is not unusual phenomenon in Ethiopia at all - it can be found at the waterfalls on the Blue Nile almost permanently. The apparent resemblance to the flag of Bolivia is most likely just a coincidence. Since Ethiopia is the oldest sovereign state in Africa, the tricolor was later adopted by a number of newly emerging countries with reference to this fact. Moreover, the flag of Ethiopia carries a national emblem that has been added in 1996 and which shows a yellow pentagram with five rays located in a blue circle. This symbol is to remind that all Ethiopians stands equal.
