Flag of Zimbabwe 🇿🇼

Flag of Zimbabwe

The flag of Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 has been adopted in 1980 and it is composed of seven horizontal stripes. The color sequence is axially symmetrical about the middle black stripe. Coming from the black stripe, there are red, yellow and green stripes. On the left side of the flag, a white wedge that carries a symbol of bird carved in soapstone in the red five-pointed star is placed. The colors were inspired by the flag of the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front, which pushed for gaining independence of the former Rhodesia from Great Britain. The star recalls the origins of socialism in the country and the symbolism of colors is as follows: black represents the African population, the red blood shed during the struggle for independence, yellow mineral wealth and green fruitful landscape. White color traditionally symbolizes peace.
