Eswatini flag

Eswatini (previously Swaziland) adopted its flag on October 6, 1968, shortly after the country obtained independence from the British Empire. King Sobhuza II devised the design, which has a black and white shield with a staff and two spears on a background of blue, yellow, and red horizontal stripes.

The flag is based on the military flag handed to the Swazi Pioneer Corps by King Sobhuza II in 1941 to remind them of the country's military heritage. The flag was raised for the first time on April 25, 1967, when the king took the promise of allegiance. On October 30, 1967, it was registered with the College of Arms in London.
