Kenya was a British protectorate from 1890 until 1920, when it became a British colony, finally gaining independence in 1963. The flag adopted in 1963 is derived from that used by the Kenya African National Union (KANU), the political movement that lead the country to independence.
The black-red-green tri-colour features a Masai shield and spears, which are intended to symbolize the defense of freedom, and Kenya's willingness to defend herself. The black is symbolic of the black population of Kenya, the red symbolizes blood and the fact that Kenyans blood is same as other peoples, and the green represents agriculture, the earth and natural resources. The white is variously described as representing peace and unity, or representing the other main political party in Kenya, the Kenyan African Democratic Union.Contact us to purchase
