Flag of Zimbabwe (GIF)



The national flag of Zimbabwe consists of seven horizontal lines: green, yellow, red, and black. The white triangle on the left has a red star and a Zimbabwean bird. The bird symbolizes the history of Zimbabwe. The red star represents the aspirations of the country, but it is generally thought to symbolize socialism and the struggle for revolutionary freedom and peace. Also, the colors of the flag are symbolic: black for the ethnic majority, red for the blood spilled in the process of liberation, green for agriculture, yellow for wealth, and white for peace and progress. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on April 18, 1980.

The shield on its coat of arms shows Great Zimbabwe, a medieval city symbolizing the nation's historical heritage. The blue-white wavy lines represent water that brings abundance. The rifle and hoe behind the shield symbolize the transition from war to peace. The two kudus supporting the shield represent the unity of purpose of Zimbabwe's various ethnic groups.

The Zimbabwe flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Zimbabwe, officially known as the Republic of Zimbabwe, is a landlocked country in South Africa. Its capital is Harare, and its population is about 16,150,000.
