The Angolan flag was first used at the country’s independence on November 11, 1975. The red horizontal stripe represents the Angolan blood that was shed during oppression, liberation, and in defense of Angola. The black horizontal stripe represents the continent of Africa. The yellow emblem includes a cogwheel, machete, and star. The cogwheel represents industry and laborers, while the machete represents peasants, agriculture, and the armed struggle for independence. The star represents international solidarity and progress. The yellow color signifies the country’s wealth. This highly symbolic flag is a striking and beautiful way to honor Angola.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a 10 in. black pole topped with a gold-painted spear. Base not included.
