The standard proportion of the Niger Flag is in the ratio of 6:7. The top orange band of the flag of Niger represents the Savannah grasslands that lie in the northern regions of the Sahara Desert. The white color is symbolic of purity as well as innocence.
The green band stands for the country’s rainforests and the Niger River. The orange disc in the middle of the white band signifies the celestial sun as well as the eagerness of the state to protect its freedom.
