Flag of Namibia (GIF)


The flag of Namibia is divided into two triangles by a white-edged red stripe running from the lower left corner to the upper right corner. The upper triangle is blue with a 12-beam sun, and the lower triangle is green. The red color refers to Namibians, and the white color refers to peace and unity. The color green symbolizes vegetation and agricultural resources. Blue represents the sky and the Atlantic Ocean, the country's precious water resources and rain. And the golden yellow sun symbolizes life and energy. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on March 21, 1990.

On the top of the shield covered with the national flag on its coat of arms, there are diamonds symbolizing the economy of the country on the headband, and on the top of the headband there is a fish eagle symbolizing the country's water resources and farsightedness. Under the shield is the Welwitschia mirabilis plant rooted in the desert sand, symbolizing the country's fortitude and determination, and on either side of the shield are Oryx antelopes, known for their courage and pride.

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