The white stripe symbolizes peace, purity, and the unity of its people. The green stripe represents hope for the future and harks back to the lush virgin forests of Ivory Coast. Together, these colors beautifully encapsulate the country's rich natural landscapes, its commitment to unity and peace, and its aspirations for a prosperous and harmonious future, making the flag a powerful symbol of Ivory Coast's national identity and values.

The coat of arms of Ivory Coast is a symbolically rich emblem with a meaningful design. The green shield at its center features the head of an elephant, representing the country's largest animal and the source of the ivory that gives Ivory Coast its name. Above the shield, a rising sun symbolizes a new beginning and hope for the future, while two golden palm trees on either side of the shield highlight the nation's tropical landscape and agricultural richness. The gold band at the bottom of the shield bears the inscription "République de Côte d'Ivoire," officially declaring the country's name.
