The national flag of Burundi (Kirundi: ibendera ry'Uburundi, French: Drapeau du Burundi) consists of a white saltire (diagonal cross), which divides the field into red panels at the top and bottom and green panels at the hoist and fly sides. The red panels symbolize the suffering of the nation's past struggles for independence, while the green panels represent hope and optimism for the country's future. The white saltire symbolizes peace and the bravery of the Burundian people. At the center of the flag is a large white circle containing three red six-pointed stars that represent the three major ethnic groups in the country: the Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa.
