Flag of Kenya (GIF)


The flag of Kenya is a tri-colored flag, consisting of black, red and green bands separated by white lines, with a black Masai shield on two spears centered on the flag. The black color represents the people of the Republic of Kenya. The red color refers to the spilled blood in the struggle for independence. The green color represents the country's landscape and natural wealth. The white color symbolizes peace and honesty. Also, the traditional Masai shield and two spears symbolize the defense of the above-mentioned things. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on December 12, 1963.

The shield and spears, symbolizing protection in its coat of arms, were supported by two lions. The rooster, holding an ax in his hand above the shield, represents authority, work, success, and the beginning of a new dawn. On the ground is a silhouette of Mount Kenya showing the country's agricultural products (coffee, pyrethrum, sisal, tea, maize, and pineapple).

The Kenya flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
