Flag of Rwanda (GIF)


The Rwandan flag is a three-color flag of blue, yellow, and green bands with the sun to the right of the blue band. The blue band, which is wider than the others, represents happiness and peace, and the yellow band symbolizes economic development. The green color symbolizes the hope of prosperity, and the sun represents enlightenment. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on October 25, 2001.

The green ring on its coat of arms symbolizes industrial development, the two shields on the sides symbolize patriotism, national sovereignty and defense of justice, and the basket in the middle symbolizes the gift of friendship among Rwandans. Sorghum and coffee stalks on both sides of the basket are the main agricultural products of the country.

The Rwanda flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a sovereign state in Central and East Africa. Its capital is Kigali, and its population is about 12,374,000.
