Its colors were inspired by the Pan-African colors, but green was changed to blue to avoid confusion with Mali’s flag. The blue in this flag stands for the sky, water, and hope. Yellow represents the sun and the deserts in the country’s north. Red represents unity, progress, and sacrifice. It also symbolizes the blood that was shed for this country.
