Flag of Mozambique

The flag of Mozambique 🇲🇿 has been adopted in 1983 and Mozambique is currently the only country whose flag bears a symbol of a weapon. The flag consists of three stripes in green, black and yellow colors, which are separated by narrower white stripes. On the left side there is a red wedge where symbols of yellow star, white book, hoe and Kalashnikov are layered.
