Zambian Flag Description
The flag of Zambia is green, with a rectangular section along the lower hoist side partitioned off.
This rectangle is divided into three vertical stripes of red, black, and orange from the inside to the outside of the flag. Above this rectangle of stripes is a golden eagle.

The colors of the flag are used to symbolize various aspects of Zambia and its land. The green represents the fertile lands. The red is for Zambia's fight for freedom, and the black represents the people of Zambia. The golden orange of the last stripe represents Zambia's rich minerals and natural resources. The eagle at the top represents the people of Zambia rising above the country's problems.

History of the Flag of Zambia
The flag of Zambia was designed by Gabriel Ellison, a Zambian artist who designed not only the national flag, but its coat of arms and other official emblems. The flag of Zambia was officially adopted on October 24, 1964, but the colors were revised in 1996, replaced with more vibrant shades.
