The Cote d’ Ivoire flag comprises three equal-sized vertical bands – orange, white, and green from left to right.

Orange is the color of the land; it represents the fertile areas in the savannahs of the north; white symbolizes joys and happiness and also represents the freshwater flowing in the rivers of the country, and green stands for the lush greenery of the coastal forests. Green is also interpreted as the color of hope and a bright future.

The Cote d’ Ivoire flag bears a close resemblance to the flag of Ireland.
