Flag of Uganda 🇺🇬

Flag of Uganda

The flag of Uganda 🇺🇬 was designed in 1962 by Ugandan minister of Justice Grace Ibingira. It consists of two times repeated tricolor of in total six horizontal stripes of black, yellow and red color - colors characteristic of the Ugandan People's Congress, which came to power in 1962. In the center of the flag, Crowned Crane in a white circle with a red comb is shown. The Crane is a national bird of Uganda and it appeared on the national coat of arms already by the time when Uganda was a British colony. The bird is supposed to symbolize progress of the country. The flag has remained unchanged in spite of numerous political changes and upheavals since its adoption.
