Zimbabwe's national flag, known as the “Rainbow Flag,” was established on April 18, 1980, to commemorate the country's independence from British colonial rule. The flag has seven horizontal green, gold, red, and black stripes, as well as a white triangle on the hoist side with a red five-pointed star and a depiction of the Zimbabwe Bird.
The flag's green tint signifies the country's agricultural prosperity, while the gold color depicts the country's mineral resources. The red hue depicts the blood poured during Zimbabwe's liberation war, while the black color represents the indigenous people of Zimbabwe. The white triangle on the flag denotes peace, while the red star represents the nation's hopes, while it is frequently interpreted as signifying the country's socialist ideology.
The flag's design was inspired by the flag of Zimbabwe's ruling party at the time, the Zimbabwe African National Union (ZANU), as a symbol of unity and national pride. The Zimbabwe bird, which is based on a figurine discovered at the Great Zimbabwe ruins, serves as a reminder of the country's rich cultural legacy and history.
