Zambia flag

Zambia's flag is a symbol of the country's independence, history, and aspirations. The flag of Zambia was designed in 1964, shortly after the country gained independence from British colonial rule, and it depicts the country's unique cultural, historical, and geographical characteristics.

The green color depicts the country's lush vegetation, the red color signifies the struggle for independence, and the black color represents the Zambian people. The orange stripe represents the country's natural resources and mineral richness, while the eagle in flight depicts the power of the people to rise above the nation's challenges. In 1996, the flag was significantly altered to make the green color brighter and lighter, and to align the eagle with the design of the national coat of arms.
