Flag of Madagascar (GIF)



The flag of Madagascar (Malagasy: sainan'i Madagasikara; French: drapeau de Madagascar) consists of two horizontal bands of red and green with a white vertical band on the left. The flag's colors represent the history of Madagascar: red and white are the colors of the Kingdom of Merina, and green is the color of Hova, the largest peasant class. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on October 14, 1958.

Its yellow seal includes a red map of the island in the middle and the head of a zebu cattle below the map. The red rays emanating from the map make it similar to the sun, and the green rays are similar to Ravenala, a plant native to Madagascar.

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