Flag of Zambia 🇿🇲

Flag of Zambia

The base of a flag of Zambia 🇿🇲, which has been adopted in 1964, is composed of a green leaf. The flag is unusual by positioning the other symbols on the right side of the flag. We can find there three stripes above which a golden eagle taken from the national coat of arms spreads its wings. The green color reminds lush vegetation and eagle stands for unfailing hope in the hearts of local people. Three stripes in red, black and orange colors were taken from the flag of UNIP party, which led the country during the struggles for independence around 1964. Red stands for the bloodshed during these fights and black represents the African people. The orange color supposedly refers to mineral wealth located in Zambia.
