Title: Zambia Flag
Resolution: 3840 x 2160

The flag of Zambia, a landlocked country in Southern Africa, was officially adopted on October 24, 1964, the day of its independence from British colonial rule. The flag is a vibrant and distinctive ensemble of six colors arranged in vertical stripes. The flag features three main vertical stripes: the green stripe on the left represents Zambia’s lush vegetation and natural resources, the red stripe in the middle symbolizes the country’s struggle for freedom, and the orange stripe on the right signifies Zambia’s abundant mineral wealth. Additionally, these three stripes are bordered by thinner stripes of black, representing the people of Zambia, and on the outer edges, there are white stripes symbolizing the nation’s unity and the peaceful coexistence of its diverse population.

Designed by government officials and a group of citizens, the Zambian flag encapsulates the nation’s historical journey to sovereignty and its commitment to unity and development. The incorporation of multiple colors and symbols in the flag reflects Zambia’s rich diversity and the collective aspirations of its people. Recognizable for its unique combination of colors and symbolism, the Zambian flag stands as a visual representation of the nation’s identity, embodying the principles of unity, freedom, and prosperity that have shaped Zambia since it gained independence over five decades ago.
