Mozambique's flag is a tricolor flag with white fimbriations and a red triangle. The teal hue of the flag indicates the land's wealth, the white fimbriations represent peace, the black color represents the African continent, the yellow color represents the country's minerals, and the red color represents the country's struggle for independence. A Kalashnikov gun with a bayonet attached to the barrel, which is crossed by a hoe, is also overlaid on an open book on the flag.
The gun denotes defense and vigilance, the open book indicates the significance of education, the hoe represents the country's agriculture, and the star depicts the Mozambican people's sense of international solidarity.
It's one of just four UN member states having a firearm, along with Guatemala, Haiti, and Bolivia, although it's the only one with a modern firearm rather than ancient cannons or muskets. The present flag of Mozambique was adopted on May 1, 1983, and it replaced the previous flag, which was used when the country was still under Portuguese colonial administration.
