Botswana Flag GIF (Folaga ya Botswana)

The national flag of Botswana (Setswana: folaga ya Botswana) consists of a light blue field cut horizontally by a black stripe with a white border in the center. The light blue color represents water and rain. The white and black colors symbolize harmony and cooperation between people of different races. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on September 30, 1966.

Its traditional shield has cogwheels representing industry, waves representing water, and a bull's head symbolizing livestock. Two zebras supporting the shield symbolize wildlife, and one holds sorghum, the nation's important crop, while the other holds ivory, symbolizing the ancient ivory trade. The word "PULA," written on a blue ribbon, means rain and good luck and is also the name of the country's currency.
