The official flag of Burundi comprises a white saltire which divides the field into alternating red and green segments. In the center of the saltire is a white disk, on which there are three red solid six-pointed stars outlined in green.

These stars are positioned in a triangular arrangement and refer to the National motto of Burundi which is "Unity, Work, and Progress". The stars also represent the three ethnic groups in the country - the Hutu, Tutsi and the Twa. The white color epitomizes peace, green stands for optimism amd hope, and red stands for the bloodshed of the soldiers in the struggle for independence. The ratio of the flag is 3:5.
