Flag of Mali (GIF)

The national flag of Mali (French: drapeau du Mali) is a tricolor design featuring three vertical stripes of green, yellow, and red, from left to right. These colors are steeped in symbolism: green represents the country's lush, fertile land and its connection to the Niger River; yellow signifies the nation's vast mineral wealth, particularly gold; and red is a powerful symbol of the blood shed by those who fought for independence. The flag's design embodies Mali's agricultural and natural resources, as well as its historical struggle for freedom and sovereignty, making it a vibrant and meaningful representation of the nation's identity and aspirations.

The emblem of the Republic of Mali, a sky-blue circular design, is rich in symbolism. At its center, it prominently features the Great Mosque of Djenné, a representation of Mali's predominant religion, Islam, and the nation's rich cultural heritage. Above the mosque, a bird, disputed between being a legendary vulture or a dove, embodies the ideals of peace and harmony. The mosque is flanked by two bows and arrows, symbolizing Mali's commitment to defense and sovereignty. The rising sun at the bottom signifies hope and a promising future. The circle's border is inscribed with the country's official name in French, "République du Mali," at the top and the country's official motto, "Un Peuple, Un But, Une Foi" (One People, One Goal, One Faith), at the bottom, encapsulating Mali's core values of unity, purpose, and faith in a beautifully designed emblem.

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