Flag of Mali (GIF)


The national flag of Mali consists of three vertical bands in pan-African colors: green, yellow, and red. The green color represents the fertility of the soil. Golden yellow means purity and mineral wealth. And the red color symbolizes the blood shed for independence. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 1, 1961.

Its blue emblem features a mosque representing the country's majority religion, Islam, a white bird above the mosque, and two bows, two arrows, and a rising sun under the mosque.
