The flag of Zambia consists of an orange eagle above a rectangular block of three vertical bands of red, black, and orange, this all on the rightmost side of a large green field. This flag is notable due to the fact that most flags place their objects in the center or on the left, while this flag places them on the right. Green represents the vegetation and agriculture, red represents the struggle for freedom, black represents the people of the country, and orange represents the mineral wealth of the land. In addition, the flying eagle represents the people’s ability to rise above the problems of the nation. This flag was adopted on October 24th, 1964.
