Flag of Zambia (GIF)


The flag of Zambia consists of a green field showing an orange-colored African fish eagle flying over a rectangular block with three vertical stripes in red, black, and orange. The green color symbolizes the country's green flora, while the red color represents the country's liberation struggle. While black symbolizes the people of Zambia, the orange color represents the country's natural resources and mineral wealth. In addition, the eagle flying over the colored lines aims to represent the freedom, hope, and ability of people to rise above the problems of the nation. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on October 24, 1964.

The black shield with white stripes on its coat of arms is a representation of the Zambezi river and Victoria Falls. The pick and hoe on top of the shield represent the economic backbone of the country. The shield is supported by a man and a lady, symbolizing the nation. Also on the lawn are a corncob symbolizing the country's agriculture, a zebra symbolizing wildlife and a tower symbolizing its mining.

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