Flag of Sudan

Flag of Sudan

The flag of Sudan, which has been adopted in 1970, consists of three horizontal stripes in red, white and black colors and a green wedge in the left part of the flag. The flag from the days before the coup in 1970 consisted of a horizontal blue-yellow-green tricolor. The current flag is very similar to the former flag of Libya, which also bears traditional pan-Arab colors to commemorate solidarity towards the other Arab nations. Official symbolism of colors is as follows: red stripe represents struggles and blood shed, white stands for Islamic people, peace and love, black represents Sudan itself, and green symbolizes prosperity and agricultural tradition of Sudan.
