Inspired by the French Tricolore, the national flag of the Republic of Chad is a beautiful blend of pan-African colors and the colors of the French national flag. The green color of the original design was substituted by blue to avoid confusion with the flag of Mali. The flag of Chad consists of three equal vertical bands – Blue, yellow, and red from left to right.

The use of blue in the flag of Chad represents the clear blue skies and the azure waters on the southern shores of Chad. It represents hope and ambition for the country. The yellow band represents the bright sunshine experienced by Chad and also signifies the sands of the desert to the north of Chad. The red band stands for progress and unity and the sacrifice of the martyrs.
