Angola became an independent nation on 11th November 1975, at which time the national flag was hoisted, after centuries of Portuguese colonial domination. The national flag contains symbols of the revolutionary Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), which was in the forefront of the struggle to end colonial rule.
The red stripe symbolizes the revolution struggle, the black stands for an independent black African nation. The machete and cogwheel represent the agricultural and industrial workers of the country, united to help Angola progress. The star stands for Internationalism and advancement, its five points suggesting unity, liberty, justice, democracy and progress. The flag of the MPLA was similar except that the star was larger and the machete and cogwheel were omitted.Contact us to purchase
