The flag's colours of orange, white and green are said to stand for Niger's savannah grasslands, the Niger River and the country's rain forests respectively, whilst the orange roundel is said to represent the sun.
The flag of Niger was officially adopted on 23 November 1959 just prior to the country gaining its full independence from French West Africa.
