Namibia’s National Flag was unanimously adopted by the Constituent Assembly on 2 February 1990 as a symbol of the country’s struggle for national unity.

It symbolises peace, unity and common loyalty to Namibia. The National Flag represents the nation in every aspect. The sun symbolises life and energy. The golden colour of the sun represents the warmth and the colour of the plains of the Namib Desert.

The blue symbolises the sky, the Atlantic Ocean, Namibia’s marine resources and the importance of rain and water. Red represents the Namibian people, their heroism and their determination to build a future of equal opportunity for all. White refers to peace and unity, while the green symbolises the country’s vegetation and agricultural resources.
