Flag of Mozambique (GIF)

The national flag of Mozambique (Portuguese: Bandeira de Moçambique) has a colorful and emblematic design. It consists of horizontal stripes of green, black, and yellow, separated by two narrow white lines, with a red triangle on the hoist side. Each color carries significant symbolism: green signifies the country's fertile land, yellow represents its mineral wealth, and black stands for the African continent and the people's heritage. The white lines symbolize peace, and the red triangle symbolizes the nation's struggle for independence. Within the red triangle, there is an image of a hoe and a rifle crossed over an open book, all on a yellow star. The rifle and the hoe represent defense and the importance of labor; the open book signifies the value of education; and the star embodies the principles of Marxism and internationalism. This flag beautifully reflects Mozambique's history, culture, and the aspirations of its people.
