The colors on the flag correspond to those on the national coat of arms. The overall blue expresses the concepts of sky and water, fused to represent rain. The white-black-white bands depict the racial harmony of the people as well as the pluralist nature of the society and are inspired by the coat of the zebra, the national animal.
Both the currency and national motto of Botswana are Pula, which means 'rain', or 'Let there be Rain'. To a Tswana, 'pula' means more than just rain, which falls out the sky: it stands for luck, life and prosperity, and the word 'pula' is also a greeting. In Mmabatho, in ex-Bophuthatswana, one of the most impressive pieces of architecture is a water tower in the symbolic shape of two hands holding aloft a bowl. Not surprising in such an arid country.Contact us to purchase
