The flag of Zambia is set on a green field and features a panel of three vertical bands of red, black and orange at the fly edge of the flag, above which sits an orange eagle. The flag's primary colour of green is said to represent Zambia's agriculture and lush flora whilst the colours of red, black and orange are said to symbolise the struggle for independence, the people and the nation's rich copper resources respectively.
The flag of Zambia was officially adopted on 24 October 1964 following the country gaining its independence from Britain. The flag was designed by local Zambian artist Gabriel Ellison.
The flag's ratio is 2:3.
