The flag of Uganda was adopted on independence from Britain in 1962. The colours of the flag were the colours of the Uganda People's Congress Party, which took power to be the first independent government under Prime Minister Milton Obote. The flag has remained unchanged since its inception despite four major coups, including that of the despotic Idi Amin.
The colours of black yellow and red are arranged in 6 equal horizontal bars with the white badge in the center of the flag containing a depiction of the crested crane, a long standing emblem of Uganda, which also appeared earlier on the colonial ensign as a badge in the fly of a British Blue Ensign. The black is said to represent the people and Africa, yellow represents the sun, which is directly overhead in this equatorial country, and red represents the brotherhood of all people.Contact us to purchase
